Night Village by Karla Gerard – Artifact Puzzles – 164 pieces

My first wooden puzzle and I loved it! I wish I had unlimited funds so I could get myself some more right away! 🙂

Troll Hair Puzzle – Cardinal – 48 pieces

Quick check of this kids puzzle to be sure all the pieces were there. I’m not sure why they have a piece with troll hair on it, seems a little weird to me. 😐

Prima Ballerina – Ravensburger – 500 pieces

Lovely puzzle with excellent pieces that seemed HUGE after trying to complete Winter Aspen. Pretty image, too bad there’s a piece missing. Still, fun to assemble.

Barnyard Dreams by Dan Hatala – MasterPieces – 1000 pieces

Another fun Childhood Dreams puzzle, I really like these! The artwork is great and the quality is too.

 

 

This was quite an interesting puzzle! Double sided with the endangered animal on one side, and the other has information about where they live and why they are endangered. Very cool!

Pam by Michael Hague – Great American Puzzle Factory – 100 pieces

Super interesting puzzle! Very small unopened box we got at the thrift store, and a really cute image too. This one is from 1984 – wow!

It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown by Charles Schulz – USAopoly – 500 pieces

Fun puzzle, not the best quality though. 😐 Oh well, I was in the mood for a Halloween puzzle and there it was!

Mickey & Minnie Forever – Mega Puzzles – 300 pieces

Adorable Disney puzzle mom and I did together (she did most of it). I enjoyed it very much.

Dragon Rider by Lynton Levengood – Ravensburger – 100 pieces

Such a beautiful puzzle with wonderful Ravensburger quality – I’m sad a piece is missing! 😦

Songbird Menagerie by James Hautman – Buffalo – 300 pieces

Another puzzle mom and I did together; quick and fun! Buffalo quality is very good and the image is beautiful and calm.

Castle of Horror by Jean-Jacques Loup – Heye – 2000 pieces

This was quite difficult for me, I have been having difficulty sitting or standing to work on puzzles at all and this took me an entire week to finish. It’s beautiful and full of Loup’s fantastic (and naughty) sense of humor!

 

Fourth puzzle from the Vibrant Puzzle Calendar Kit. I really enjoy these, and typing up my post today for the third puzzle I assembled made me want to do another one. This one is a little close to Winter Aspen. Oh my! 😐

Barn Sale by Tracy Hall – Bits and Pieces – 750 pieces

I really had a good time assembling this puzzle. I was having a lot of anxiety and stress about something, and working on this puzzle took me right out of that. I so needed a break and this puzzle was perfect for that!

Flower Pot Friends by Jane Maday – Mega Puzzles (Garden Delights Series) – 750 pieces

This was the best quality Mega Puzzles brand I have ever done. There were a lot of whimsies in it, and it is pretty darned cute too! (And I’m not even a cat person)

Dear God, Friends are Forever by Annie Fitzgerald – Vista Puzzles – 100 pieces

Adorable kid’s puzzle that is much more difficult than it looks! Mom and I had to really pay attention. 🙂

Perpetual Puzzles Pesky Parrots by Makoto Nakamura – The Lagoon Group – 36 pieces

Super interesting puzzle, and pretty fun to work with. The object of this one was to make a 6 x 6 square where no parrot of one color was touching another parrot of the same color.

Perpetual Puzzles Pesky Parrots by Makoto Nakamura – The Lagoon Group – 36 pieces

Same puzzle, but this time no color parrot touches another parrot of the same color AND the beaks and feet that touch each other cannot be the same color. A little more tricky, but we figured it out. 🙂

 

The name of this double-sided puzzle is Tudor Portraits, but each actual portrait has it’s own name. Confusing! It’s a 500 piece puzzle by Past Times. This was the last of 3 puzzles mom and I completed on our visit day; we liked it very much!

(What If #10) The Birthday by Geoff Tristam – Ravensburger 1000 pieces

Poor Derek only wants to spend his birthday having a nice dinner with his family, if only! Had a really good time assembling this puzzle. 🙂

My Sister’s Closet by Tricia Reilly-Matthews – Sunsout – 300 pieces

How adorable is this image? So adorable! Sometimes a 300 piece is just what I need, not too easy, not too difficult. Just right!
