Cottages – Part 4

Cottages 4-1
Cottages (4) by Kim Leo – Cra-Z-Art – 125/500 pieces

And now we’ve come to the close of our trip down cottage lane, and wasn’t it fun? I hope you readers have enjoyed it as much as I have. I think each little piece of artwork deserves to be appreciated, and have had a great time showing them all!

For those of you wondering, the quality of these puzzles is pretty good. The pieces are on the thinner side, but they’re sturdy and have a very nice variety of shapes. They fit together well, if perhaps slightly loosely, and as you can see the image reproduction is lovely with bright colors, crisp lines, and no fuzziness or blurry areas. The added colored backing seems to make it so that the die doesn’t cut all the way through on every piece, and each little puzzle had several pieces still attached. It wasn’t too terrible though, and just a little tug was all that was needed to separate them.

I’m calling this one Heart House, because there are hearts everywhere! From the weather vane at the top of the house to paving stones in the walkway – hearts, hearts, and more hearts! Some of them are easy to miss, did you see the heart on the trim boards at the top of the house? So sweet! How about the X’s and O’s hanging off the porch roof? Hugs and kisses for everyone. This is in my top 3 of the entire set, love it! 😍

Here’s another one with an autumn look to it, the Butternut Bakery. I love the little seating area near the top of the building, and the birdhouse too. Did you notice the weather vane? It’s a rolling pin! The small details like that are adorable; I really do love the work of this artist – it makes me smile. 🙂

And lastly is the Sea Breeze Inn, doesn’t this look like a wonderful place for a weekend at the beach? I’m not a fan of sand, so I don’t think I’d be doing much at the beach, but it looks like a lovely place to sit on the porch and relax. All they need is a table there so I could work on a puzzle or two – then it would be perfect! 🧩

Did you notice? This is the only cottage without a cat!

    That is another thing I like about puzzling. You see the basic picture on the box but when you start assembling you pick up and appreciate the tiniest details. I didnt notice the weather vane until you pointed it out and then noticed on the last house the sailboat weather vane! Now I need to go back and check out all the others!

    1. To be honest Deb I didn’t notice all of the details until I was writing up the posts. Some I did, but others I just blew past to get to my next puzzle. (Didn’t notice the sailboat either! I looked at it, but thought it was just a triangle shape, I guess my eyesight is worse than I thought!)

    The 4 days of cottage has been wonderful! I would love to see other theme posts when you are inclined to pull out another set.

    I am so excited to see that “Stacey & David” is on your board! The puzzle with you and your Mom was awesome and I am looking forward to seeing the second Mr. Bob puzzle your husband so brilliantly gave you!!!
