Kitten Surprise
Kitten Surprise – Buffalo – 300 pieces

First puzzle of the month, and my puzzle posse (mom) helped me with it today. I’m not a cat person, but it’s pretty darned cute! 😻

 

Sophia's Doll House
Sophia’s Doll House by Eduard – MasterPieces – 1000 pieces

I had a great time with this puzzle! It’s got beautiful colors, cute toys, kittens, and lots of rooms that made it seem like a collage. Fun!

 

Kittens in the Kitchen
Kittens in the Kitchen by Rosalind Solomon – Bits & Pieces – 300 pieces

I have no idea why the first 3 puzzles this month had cats in them, I’m not a cat person! To be honest I just saw the kitchen and didn’t even notice the kittens until I started to assemble it. Guess I’m not the most observant person today, am I? Fun puzzle, not great quality though, the puzzle was bent and didn’t lay flat. 😦

 

Balloons Over Cottage Cove
Balloons Over Cottage Cove by Nicky Boehme – Milton Bradley – 500 pieces

Beautiful, calming image – but much more of a challenge than I thought. Added bonus, no cats! (see the previous 3 puzzles this month) The nature of the artwork made it a bit more difficult, but I enjoyed it anyway.

 

Queen Anne's Revenge
Queen Anne’s Revenge – CubicFun – 340 pieces

It took me forever, but I did it! I’m super proud of myself and it looks ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! It certainly tested me, and it’s definitely not for beginners, but even though I got thoroughly frustrated at times I enjoyed assembling it and it looks AMAZING!

 

Empire State Building
Empire State Building – CubicFun – 16 pieces

This was a gift inside the box of the Queen Anne’s Revenge. After completing that monstrous ship, this little building was a breeze!

Vintage Needle Books by Beryl Peters – Piatnik – 1000 pieces

This collage was tons of fun! Mom even came over and helped me finish it, and we both had a great time. Great puzzle!

Fruits of a Morning Walk by Marjolein Bastin – Ceaco – 300 pieces

There was no name shown on the box, I had to look up the artwork online to find the name of the image. It’s beautiful, and made for a challenging puzzle – even for 300 pieces.

Berry Bucket by Jane Maday – Ravensburger – 500 pieces

Very pretty image that made for a fun assembly, mom helped me get it going and I finished it. I enjoyed the sunflowers even more than I thought I would!

 

Harvest Farm
Harvest Farm by Alan Giana – Wentworth Wooden Puzzles – 250 pieces

I almost forgot I had these wooden puzzles left to assemble – my memory is shot! After not touching a puzzle for 2 days this beauty fed my addiction wonderfully. Gorgeous puzzle, excellent assembly. I think this will be my post for Halloween unless another “fall” puzzle ends up at my house. 🎃

 

Doors of Europe
Doors of Europe by Dominic Davison – Educa – 1500 pieces

This gorgeous puzzle was so much fun, I didn’t have any anxiety about the piece count at all. Mom came over and helped me the first day, and I got it finished in 3 days! Wow.

 

The 12:09 - on time again!
The 12:09 – On Time Again! by Jane Wooster Scott – Ceaco – 528 pieces

This is a puzzle backed with corkboard, and it’s another that I forgot I had in the house. It’s much more difficult than it looks, there was color line cutting, a wonky edge, and a devious cut!
