Red by Guido Cecere – Ceaco – 550 pieces

This one was more difficult than the yellow one, but still fun! Lots of words made it a little easier, and it looks great!

Teacups – Lafayette Puzzle Factory – 500 pieces

As usual, I loved this puzzle – I loved it even more because my oldest worked with me and he assembled half of them. Bonding over puzzles!

Reef Fish – Lafayette Puzzle Factory – 500 pieces

We had a good day, two 500 piece puzzles and lots of time spent watching MASH and assembling these beautiful fish! There’s a new addition to my puzzle posse!

I wasn’t sure I would like this puzzle, but I enjoyed it very much! It was nice to get back to a Ravensburger too. 🙂

Beautiful, colorful, and lots of fun! This one had great whimsies too! I love wooden puzzles so very much. ❤

Unseen by Edmundo Sanchez – Artifact Puzzles – 252 pieces

This was SOOOO hard! I had it sitting on a board for weeks, and sometimes I was only able to find a piece at a time. I am absolutely not taking this one apart! I have to find a way to frame it without glue and also being able to display the back as well!

Sky Roads by Royce B. McClure – Wentworth Wooden Puzzles – 40 pieces

I think I may have come around to hot air balloon puzzles, this one is beautiful and fun! I love the colors too, gorgeous!

My son and I put these together, he’s really come to love these small shaped puzzles – almost as much as I do!

Peace Love (Pop Art) – Ceaco – 550 pieces

As gorgeous as this is to look at, it wasn’t as much fun to assemble. My whole posse and I worked on this together – mom, son, and little old me. 🙂

Cupcakes II – Lafayette Puzzle Factory – 500 pieces

Love, love, love these puzzles! Bright colors, fun images, fantastically interesting too – what more could you ask for?

Marbles by Julie Seabrook – Galison – 500 pieces

I love images like this where colors blend into one another, and I was very excited to start this one. Unfortunately all the pieces were the same shape, which made this much more difficult. I admit I was disappointed. 😦

Walk Me by Amy Rosenberg – Bits and Pieces – 500 pieces

This puzzle is so cute! It was a bit challenging, but in a good way. The random cut of the pieces sometimes helped, and sometimes added to the difficulty. A great puzzle!

More Ice Cream Please – Cobble Hill – 500 pieces

I really had a good time with this one, unfortunately it was missing 4 pieces – those are the chances you take when you buy used puzzles. 🤔

Reef Fish (2) – Lafayette Puzzle Factory – 500 pieces

Obviously I love these small shaped puzzles, I can’t seem to stop assembling them! They are so completely absorbing and entertaining.

Still to Life by Dominic Davison – Wentworth Wooden Puzzles – 40 pieces

Beautiful, deep colors and, as always, excellent Wentworth quality. I really had a great time putting this puzzle together. Ever notice that Dominic Davison paints the same cottage a LOT?

Georgetown Floral by Jan Ford – Hasbro – 300 pieces

This little 300 piece gave me a run for my money! It was much more challenging than a 300 piece normally is for me, but in the end hubby helped me finish it up. Great fun though!

Basketball – Ravensburger – 54 pieces

This plastic basketball puzzle didn’t take very long to put together, but I have to say that I really had a good time with it! And look how adorable it is!

Chevy Gold – Gearheads Puzzles – 1000 pieces

This is the first 1000 piece puzzle I’ve done since the end of May! OMG! I certainly picked a doosie to start back with. It’s much more challenging than I though, but I sure do have a great feeling of accomplishment. 🙂

Ice Cream Truck by Shanghee Shin – Re-marks – 300 pieces

Mom came over to help me finish the Chevy puzzle, but I didn’t know she was on her way and I completed it before she got here. Since she was in a puzzling mood we decided to assemble a 300 piece. This one was bright and colorful and lots of fun!

Women March! by Jennifer Orkin Lewis – Eeboo – 500 pieces

I enjoyed this puzzle very much, even though super busy puzzles aren’t ones I usually like. The typo in the quote around the edge made me a little crazy, I was looking for the letters to spell it correctly and I couldn’t find them!

Engineering – Professor Puzzle – 150 pieces

I found four more “bathroom puzzles”! These little babies are all STEM puzzles that come in test tubes and are very small. Hubby helped finish this one in record time, it was lots of fun and great quality. 🙂

 

IMG_5016
Science – Professor Puzzle – 150 pieces

Hubby got so engrossed with this one that he took it into the living room to work on it while watching golf! I had to make him slow down so I could at least put a piece or two in, I can’t put it up on the blog if I didn’t help assemble it.

Cupcakes! – Re-marks – 200 pieces

Quick and fun, this little baby was assembled while laying in bed. The colors are bright and beautiful – the image reproduction was stellar!

 

IMG_5029
Beauty and the Beast by Steve Crisp – MasterPieces – 300 pieces

Pretty image with lovely colors. Unfortunately many of the pieces were very bent, and the finished puzzle didn’t lay flat. I don’t know if it was because of the thickness of the pieces or the book-shaped box that they are kept in.

Jungle Friends – Ravensburger – 200 pieces

I had a really good time with this puzzle, and even though 2 pieces are missing I wasn’t disappointed with it. Ravensburger quality is excellent!

 

IMG_5040
Picnic Raiders by Steve Read – Buffalo – 300 pieces

I finally got back to puzzling after resting for several days from a car trip and medical procedure – I missed it! And this puzzle was perfect one to get back in the groove. Great image, wonderful pieces, and excellent fit.

Viva Le Vinyl by Aimee Stewart – Ravensburger – 500 pieces

I had the best time with this one! The beautiful, bright colors and many words helped me to put this together in almost no time. Excellent quality, great image!
