Puppy Party

Puppy Party
Puppy Party by Jenny Newland – MasterPieces – 300 pieces

The puppies are having a party and they’ve invited all their friends – a good time was had by all. 😉 These sweet animal images by Jenny Newland are the perfect potion to brighten my day. The adorable faces make me smile, and we could all use more smiles these days; at least I know I could.

MasterPieces has some great 300 piece puzzles out there, they’re just right when you’re in the mood to puzzle but not ready to dive into a 1000 piece or larger. The quality is excellent, and the image reproduction is stellar. I’ve sometimes had issues with a super shiny finish on their puzzles, but this one was more matte and easier for these old eyes to work with.

I cannot resist a sad puppy face, it makes me feel so protective and want to give them SO much love and snuggles!

Puppy Party 2

I love these lovebirds!

There’s something about the almost deadpan look and smile on this fish – it cracks me up! Jenny Newland sure does know how to make animals look sweet.

Loved it. 💗

Toadstool Brook

Toadstool Brook

This was such a fun puzzle, with absolutely beautiful artwork by Steve Read. It’s been on my shelf for quite a long time, I’m not even sure how long. While looking for a puzzle with less than 1000 pieces I spotted this one way in the back; thank goodness!

Quality-wise, this puzzle was only good/fair. The fit was pretty loose, which is always a bit disappointing. But, as a whole it was still entertaining to put together, that is more than half the battle! The artwork by Steve Read is stunning, and I’m kicking myself for not getting a good closeup picture of the fairies’ faces – they are absolutely gorgeous!

There are 22 fairies in total for you to find, some of them took me quite a while to locate. If you’re not paying attention this fairy hidden in the toadstool is easy to pass over. Of course you’re seeing it right away – I’m showing you right where it is! 😉

This fairy wasn’t too difficult to find, but it did take me a little longer than I’d like to admit. My glasses needed to be cleaned. I’m not old. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

I got a really great glow in the dark picture with this one, which surprised me. This puzzle has been on the shelf for at least 2 years, possibly more. I was pretty sure that the chemical that makes it glow would have petered out, but this puzzle produced an awesome picture.

I don’t usually get such good glow images, so this one really pleased me. I love a good glow in the dark picture!
