A Walk on the Pier

A Walk on the Pier was a great puzzle, with fantastic artwork by Art Poulin that made for quite an entertaining assembly. The quality was wonderful as well, with large, thick EZ grip pieces that fit together very well. I had a great time with this one!

Sometimes, all the Americana type of images on jigsaw puzzles all seem to blend in and have the same type of scene – over and over and over again. Every so often I find myself passing up the ones in my to do “pile” because even though it hasn’t been assembled yet, it just looks too familiar. I still love Charles Wysocki, Jane Wooster Scott, Heronim, and the many other Americana artists whose images make for great puzzles, but now and again they all start to look alike and I find myself needing to take a break from those images.

This one though was just what I was looking for at the right time, and the assembly was great fun!

The detail in the tackle shop window is amazing. Hubby would be able to spend hours in there, that’s for sure.

I love lighthouses, and have also in my mind romanticized living in one. My injury has caused me to “socially distance” myself from most of the world anyway, and after almost six years I’ve had a lot of practice at it. Being alone in a lighthouse with just my family around me sounds absolutely wonderful to me; imagine how quiet it would be as well! Plus, doesn’t it look like it would have the most beautiful view?

Coastal Getaway is such a pretty scene, and it made for an entertaining assembly. There are only 300 EZ grip pieces that are thick and sturdy, with a nice fit and stellar image reproduction. I always enjoy puzzles with large pieces, for some reason they make me extremely happy. 🙂

I love lighthouses; the color of the light is so beautiful on this one, and the trees all around it are gorgeous.

Coastal Getaway 2

The stairs leading down to the beach were really fun to assemble, and I love the shells tucked up at the top; it’s something I would have done when I was younger so I wouldn’t forget to take them with me when I went home.

There’s something about this sailboat, and the lone person sailing it – I love the look of it; Alan Giana’s artwork is colorful and beautiful. This whole puzzle was a great image with lovely quality and I had a great time!
