March

Many Travel Bags
Many Travel Bags by A. Keattikorn – Milton Bradley – 500 pieces

Interesting puzzle image, and quite challenging to assemble – but a lovely first puzzle of the month! The loose fit was a bit of a bummer, but I muddled through. 😉

 

I enjoyed this little puzzle very much, especially the information on the astronaut side. Beautiful colors and sharp image.

 

Kitten Play
Kitten Play by Olga – Ceaco – 550 pieces

This was a very entertaining assembly, even with all those cats everywhere! 😉 The colors and lots of interesting patterns made it great for puzzling.

 

Farmyard Scene
Farmyard Scene by Edward Hersey – Wentworth – 40 pieces

Assembling this puzzle made me wonder why I bought it in the first place, it isn’t an image I would normally choose. It was quite dark.

 

The Conversation
The Conversation by Susan Brabeau – Milton Bradley – 1000 pieces

Here’s another puzzle I don’t think I’d normally choose, but this one was in a lot I purchased from Facebook Marketplace. The artwork is so detailed, but it’s damn difficult to assemble.

 

B & T Brewing Company
B & T Brewing Company by Art Poulin – MasterPieces – 1000 pieces

Mom helped quite a bit with this puzzle, and we had a great time. Fun image, great fit, all pieces accounted for – awesome!

 

Butterfly Bunny
Butterfly Bunny – Milton Bradley – 100 pieces

How cute is this? Even though it’s only 100 pieces I had to get it from the thrift store. 🙂

 

American Diner
American Diner by Steve Crisp – White Mountain – 1000 pieces

One of the benefits of not being able to sleep is getting plenty of puzzle time! I got this one finished much more quickly than normal – partly because it kept my interest, and partly because I had LOTS of time to work on it.

 

Travel America
Travel America – Great American Puzzle Factory – 1000 pieces

Interesting puzzle, but I don’t think I would want to assemble it again. The colors are muted and “smoky” and unfortunately it wasn’t as fun as I’d hoped. Ah well, they can’t all be awesome. 😉

 

Courtyard Wash
Courtyard Wash by Tuula Burger – Ceaco – 750 pieces

This one was just “meh”. Not too exciting or overly interesting, but then again it isn’t an image I would have chosen. Wasn’t bad though, that’s the best I can do. 😉

 

Corn Chipmunk
Corn Chipmunk – Avanti – 150 pieces

I wasn’t planning on finishing this one so soon, but mom and daughter came over to hang out and after bringing it out to show them it wasn’t long before it was done! Very cute and lots of fun. 🙂

 

Vintage Bicycle
Vintage Bicycle – Ravensburger – 300 pieces

Beautiful image reproduction on this one, along with wonderful all around quality. Lots of fun!

 

3 Hunters
Three Hunters – ? – 340 pieces

Vintage wooden puzzle I got from eBay, no box, no info at all. It wasn’t nearly as well made as our municipal building puzzle, but it was still tons of fun! 👍

 

Air Vent Kitty
Air Vent Kitty – Avanti – 150 pieces

This one was pretty tough with all that blue/dark blue, but I still managed to enjoy myself. I’m good like that. 😉

 

Herb Farm Friends
Herb Farm Friends by Nancy Wernersbach – Cardinal – 1000 pieces

A beautiful image; most of the puzzle was fun to assemble, but all those flowers gave mom and me a bit of a headache!
