The Reutrn of the Puzzle started a few weeks ago with a gristmill and deer scene -- appropriate for fall hunting season.
We know which member of the family added this one to the collection.
I prefer paintings instead of photographs for puzzles. They have so much textural detail. My favorite jigsaws will always be the grand old Springboks of the 60s and 70s, followed by the great classic artistry of Ravensburger of Germany.
I'm still looking for an old ('vintage' is the search term) circular jigsaw of a farm scene with a huge cottonwood tree, a white horse in a pond and a pink blooming tree in the foreground.
House rules are that finished puzzles stay up for 3 days and are photographed. After that, they return to their boxes, pieces well bagged to protect against humidity and mold. If the box is particularly valued, the box is bagged too.
Someday I want to blog about how one Springbok puzzle inspired my TSII horse head logo.
