About Me

Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother,a grandmothe and a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!


Heaven is in Belgium

Midweek Blues, Collector’s Item


mwb 1575


For this week’s Midweek Blues I’m sharing this terrine, which is the latest addition to my collection of old kitchen ware. I was able to buy this at a good price (I got a three Euro discount) at the garden fair we visited last Sunday. 







Midweek Blues is hosted by Rebecca at the Dusty Cellar.

Excellent craftsmanship. In the piece. In its depiction.

Very nice. As I have said before, I love to look at glazed ceramic pieces. You will have to show us pictures when you use it too.
