Childhood favorites – Re-marks – 1000 pieces

I just started sorting this puzzle, but I am SO looking forward to working on it! My regular readers know how collages are my happy place; and for myself, a voracious reader as a child, assembling these book covers is going to be highly entertaining.

The first piece I saw, once the pieces were dumped out of the bag, was a part of the title from the book Charlotte’s Web. It was a favorite of mine as a child, and I’m not sure I could tell you how many times I actually read it. Re-reading my favorites was something I did often, and happily.

Assembling the covers of my favorite books from childhood is going to be so much fun!

Lapping Up the Luau – Re-marks – 100 pieces

This is one of those untitled puzzles where, here at My Jigsaw Journal, I get to choose a title that is silly, or ridiculous, or just one that makes me laugh. These usually require some thought, or a complete disregard of thought that has me coming up with an enigmatic or ludicrous title that doesn’t even make sense with the image (those are the really fun ones). In this case though, I decided to go along with the image and just choose a fun and slightly silly title that made me laugh….Lapping Up the Luau.

I mean, look at this little pupper with his/her lei and cool sunglasses; and the rubber ducky is too cute! Even if you’re not a dog person you have to see this image and smile, you just can’t help it. Lap up that luau little one, you deserve a fun day at the beach! 🕶⛱

These small boxes with 100 piece puzzles from Re-marks are just what a gal like me needs to cleanse the palate after a large puzzle, or to jump back in to puzzling when you’ve had a sustained break from it. They’re well made, good quality puzzles with adorable images that are truly entertaining to put together. I don’t know what else I could ask for!

With puzzles that are such a small piece count I always put away the box and just work the puzzle with my only clues coming from the pieces themselves. I think it’s not only entertaining, but it keeps my mind sharp so I don’t have to re-hone the puzzle skills later on with a larger puzzle that perhaps might frustrate me.

Unfortunately I think there’s only one of these left here that I haven’t assembled, which makes me a little sad to be honest. They’re so much fun to do!
