Mixed Flowers in an Earthenware Pot

Mixed Flowers
Mixed Flowers in an Earthenware Pot by Pierre Renoir – Wentworth – 40 pieces

This puzzle is one of my large collection of micro puzzles from Wentworth, and the image is one that spoke to me recently. It reminds me of my mom, it’s beautiful, and it is also one that I absolutely would not like to assemble in a larger size.

There are quite a few images that I have in a small size particularly and especially because I enjoy the artwork but would never want to assemble them in a 1000 or even a 500 piece count. I put this image in that category, along with Starry Night by Van Gogh; there’s no way I’d be assembling either one in a larger count, it would be too frustrating for me.

That’s part of the reason I love these small puzzles from Wentworth; not only are they relatively inexpensive, they have many images that would be too tedious, difficult, or frustrating for me in a large piece count and the micro puzzles are the only way you’d find me assembling such difficult images.

Mixed Flowers whimsies

I’m not sure exactly how these whimsies tie in with the artwork, these seem more suited to an outdoor scene. But then again I don’t know for sure what whimsies would be best – other than just flowers.

I love my micro puzzles collection from Wentworth, and it’s nice to be able to revisit them. 💖

Mixed Flowers in an Earthenware Pot by Pierre Auguste Renoir – Wentworth Wooden Puzzles – 40 pieces

I spent about 4 days in bed last week; I wanted to work on puzzles so I got out a few of my micro puzzles from Wentworth so that I could assemble them on a cookie sheet while lying down. This was my first Renoir!

I don’t always enjoy working fine art puzzles, the brush strokes and indistinct shapes make assembly more difficult. Sometimes the challenge is just what I need, and sometimes I just don’t want to have to think so hard. Although when there are only 40 pieces my brain doesn’t have to work too strenuously for too long – thank goodness! 😉

I think there are probably still 10 or more of these Wentworth micro puzzles I have yet to assemble. They’re perfect for when I want to puzzle and don’t have much time, space, or energy to assemble a larger one. I’m so glad we found the micro puzzles, and am looking forward to putting together more of them.

I love working with wooden puzzles; even though the fit is loose and sometimes the piece shape is very evident I don’t really care. I just bought myself a present of a new Liberty puzzle and can’t wait for it to arrive. It doesn’t matter that it’s expensive, I don’t apologize for treating myself to something that makes me happy.
