A Christmas Story Leg Lamp – USAopoly – 500 pieces

So much fun! USAopoly has some excellent pop culture jigsaws to choose from. I’m glad I got this one from Puzzle Warehouse before it’s gone – it’s been discontinued.

Take Flight – Discovery Bay Games (Smithsonian History of Flight Collection) – 1000 pieces

Excellent quality puzzle – another thrift store find. Nice, thick pieces that fit together very well – and a collage! I love a collage! There are several nice Smithsonian history puzzles I’d love to find at the thrift stores, this one was very nice. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lindbergh’s Flight – Parker Brothers – 500 pieces

Interesting puzzle from 1967! Unfortunately 5 pieces have wandered off, but that’s only 1 a decade. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I do love having words to assemble – be careful what you wish for, for you will surely get it!

Apple Calendar by Jacek Yerka – Ceaco (New Perspectives) – 550 pieces

Fun puzzle, quick assembly with 2 people working on it. Very thin pieces, but for 69 cents you can’t beat the price – and this one hadn’t even been opened yet!

The last of 3 puzzles mom and I finished in one day! Ceaco, quality was fair – cute picture though. ๐Ÿ™‚

Star Wars – Ravensburger (Silhouette) – 1098 pieces

Wow. Just……..wow. This monster was quite a challenge for me, but in the end I won. Take that, Darth Vader! You can’t really tell from the picture but he is 42 inches high. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Alice in Wonderland – Potter Style – 500 pieces

Took me almost a week to finish this, because I was out of town for 5 days. A fun assembly, but the pieces were difficult to work with.

The Old Country Store by Art Poulin – MasterPieces (Town & Country) – 300 pieces

Fun, old-timey feeling puzzle. It’s hard to imagine a store where you could get all those things – including a marriage license??

I Remember Those! by Charlie Girard – White Mountain – 300 EZ Hold pieces

I do remember most of those! Spirograph was so much fun, silly putty was a little boring for my taste, and Lite Brite was the best! Great puzzle that takes me back. ๐Ÿ™‚
