About Me

My photo
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

Ruby Tuesday, The Bakery



This tiny little house is a bakery at Bokrijk Museum park.


Let’s have a little peek inside, shall we?






Ruby Tuesday is hosted by Mary the Teach at Work of the Poet.

I love how you make it so I really do feel like I'm walking along with you. The second photo especially feels that way.

What a wonderful trapezoid window!

I've entered a major international photo competition (details are on my blog) and would be most grateful if you'd click through and rate my portfolio (just click on the stars at the bottom (preferably the 5th star - "fantastic" - LOL), easy peasy, no registration or personal details needed). Thanks so much!

There's a little part of my brain that thinks Belgium still looks like this! Time to stop reading historical fiction.

That first photo!!! That little building is an excellent example of 'wattle and daub' building. That exposed wooden lattice work you see is called 'wattle' - and the whitewashed coating over the wattle is called 'daub' - usually, a mixture of wet soil, straw, animal dung, clay and sand. Many times it's covered over with a thin layer of plaster - or just whitewashed.

Lovely photo - and exciting to see the exposed wattle.
