Kitty in a Basket

Kitty
Kitty in a Basket – Unknown – 24 pieces

I found this puzzle in the puzzle room, sandwiched between two boxes. It had no container at all, so I have no idea of the brand or the title (if there was one).

Many puzzles for children, especially photographic ones, have no title. Just a cute little image that kids would like, and like to assemble. I’ve given this one the not so imaginative title, Kitty in a Basket. Sometimes the easiest and most obvious is the best choice. I could have gone with something enigmatic or ridiculous, like “She’s Hiding Her Sadness”, or “The Wistfulness of Veronica”. But what’s the point of that, other than to amuse myself? 😉

Anyway, not the best quality puzzle, but it was easy to put together and I finished a puzzle for the day – both good things!

Be safe out there tonight my friends, Happy New Year’s Eve! 🎉🎆🎉

Penguins – Patch Products – 24 pieces

Unfortunately for me this is the last puzzle from the box of 20 that mom and I found at a local thrift store. I’ve had such a great time putting these together that I’m a little sad that they’re all done.

I consider myself educated and intelligent, but I have to tell you I was surprised to learn from this puzzle that there are penguins native to Africa. I may have heard that before, but I obviously didn’t process or retain it. To me the continent of Africa brings to mind deserts, jungles, safaris, and heat. Penguins in Africa? How awesome!

I have to get myself to the thrift stores to see what other treasures I can find. My black belt thrift store shopping puzzle dealer isn’t around anymore to keep me swimming in interesting and beautiful puzzles – it’s time I started supplying myself. It’s worth a little pain to get myself out of the house and searching for some fun and unique puzzles.
