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

Sepia Scenes, Still Life with Egg Basket






The furniture inside the houses at Bokrijk Museum Park is decorated with old kitchen utensils like this wired egg basket for instance.
The glass object is not a bottle, it’s an old fly catcher.


Sepia Scenes is hosted by Mary the Teach.

Excellent shots of some really cool old-time stuff.

Wow how does it catch flies?

I still like the old sticky tape.
I watch the flies struggling on it and think Yes!
Its working.

I like the sepia tone for these old-fashioned items. I love the shape of the bottle of the fly-catcher.

It would be an unusual pic in any color! The same question: how does it catch flies? I swap them with a fly swapper:)

interesting objects. My mother-in-law still uses a fly catcher.

I really like that egg basket. I do believe my great aunt has one tucked away somewhere.

Maggie said...

So perfect in sepia. I don't think I ever knew about fly catchers like that. Trying to imagine the amount of fun (or not, maybe) in trying to use one.

Maggie said...

Also, thank you so much for all of your kind comments welcoming me back. You are sweet. :)

Magnificent vintage shot, Jientje! Thanks for participating! :)

A fly catcher? Do you put sweet water in it? Nice scene. :)

Wonderful picture, I would assume the Wire Egg Basket was used to bring the eggs into the house?
