Back to the sweet cottages, I’m having a really good time showing each of the puzzles in the set; I’m sure there was much effort involved in painting every one of these, and it’s so nice that we’re able to appreciate each of them separately.
This series would be great if you have young children in your house, or grandchildren who visit. Each puzzle is small enough that they wouldn’t lose interest too quickly, and even sorting is fun with all the different colored backings. The bright colors and interesting images are kid friendly as well, and also great for those of us who are just kids at heart. 🤩
I may have to dig through my stash and see which of the puzzle sets from this series I still have; reassembling this set has been so entertaining that it makes me want to reassemble the rest of them and show each small puzzle like I’ve been doing with the cottages. I’ve given several of them away to my “grandson”, but I still have a few of them here. Anyone out there interested in Small Shaped Puzzles, Part Deux? 😉
When I first saw the name of this little bakery it didn’t make any sense; then I said it out loud. Thistle Do = This’ll Do. What a great name! I love the autumn look of this cottage, with the corn stalks, apples, pumpkins, and gourds – and the wreath on the chimney is perfect!
I’m not a cat person, so I’m not sure if the cat is trying to get at the tomatoes or the herbs on the table. Do cats eat tomatoes? Or perhaps it’s just trying to cause some mischief, I know for sure that they love that! This little cottage reminds me of home; we used to live in a town with many a summer cottage on the lake shore, and quite a few have this sort of feel. Love it!
And lastly is my favorite of today’s three – a bright, fun looking cottage with a little pond/moat out front. I love the wrought iron gate on the side, and how the bright purple flowers stand out against the yellow of the house. I would love to spend a summer here – but perhaps not with a cat – my Buddy wouldn’t like it. 🐶
