Fun jigsaw puzzle

I loved this puzzle and thought I’d share it on the chance it may appeal to you too... only took three evenings for me to complete it.
It’s called Cozy Retreat by Ravensburger and is 500 pieces. Available on Amazon.

That does look like a fun one. I do one of the online jigsaw puzzles—with fewer pieces—every day. I find it calming at the end of the day.

That looks like a fun one! I just bought one today that looks exactly like a picture DS took while on his semester abroad...aka his "European Vacation" I'm excited to put the puzzle and his pic side by side!

I love Ravensburger puzzles. They are made so well. That looks like a good one. I'll have to order it.

I also like Ravensburger puzzles. My kids are doing one now that we ordered from Amazon. It's from the movie "Frozen."

They're singing one of the songs from the movie called "Let It Go."

forgot to add-Puzzlewarehouse.com has a great selection of puzzles, different brands, and for all ages.!

We finished this one today at my mother's, after she found the box under the bed with about 30 missing pieces in it . I KNEW there had to be missing pieces about 1/2 way through it.....was starting to think I was losing it!

I love that one. I may need to get it. I find puzzles so relaxing. They keep your mind busy, but are a welcome distraction.

Love the cat puzzle! Fun to see all of your responses. I am starting this one now... should take me quite a while to do it.

That's a great puzzle! Do you ModPodge and frame your puzzles? I'm working my way through a box of Thomas Kincade puzzles that I got at a thrift store for $5. That's the only way I can afford Thomas Kincade art!

I love doing puzzles, although I don't do them often enough. My favorites are the White Mountain puzzles. My last one was all about the 80s.

Here is my latest from earlier this summer! It is from the Vermont Christmas company. I have really enjoyed their puzzles.

SassyTeach—I love the White Mountain Puzzles too. I got this one last Christmas and it’s my all time favorite! I have all but 5 of these books.

(My photo won’t post but here’s a link!)

Love seeing everyone’s photos!

I live jigsaw puzzles, too! I do them on line several times a day and use the "real" ones up at the cabin during the summer. The more detail, the better.

And nothing like having a cat or two jump up on the table to see what you're doing (knowing full well what you are doing) and then swishing the pieces around with a suddenly active tail while she stares at you and then blinks, like she's saying "What are you going to do about it?" I've discovered that you can just put the box down on some part of the puzzle you've done and the cat will climb right in and be happy.

Mounted on foam

Well, I got that puzzle and the one below glued and mounted on a foam board at Michael’s to keep them from warping as badly. I have modpodged them before and put them in a frame myself, too, but I’m not going to frame them this time. They gave me some things to put on the back of the foam board to allow it to hang in the wall.

I love seeing all of your puzzles. White Mountain ones are fun, I agree. I enjoy perusing them online and have seen those choices. Some are such pretty scenes.

“Secretary” does look like a fun one, I agree.

Here is the other one I had mounted:

I love doing puzzles by SunsOut. They have a lot of vintage/retro themed ones.
Puzzles are one of my favorite ways to relax!

I enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles too, but for me it is a winter thing.

I also love to work on them while listening to an audiobook, accomplishing 2 things at once . I tried the adult coloring books, but just couldn't get into it.

Yes, twinmom! I either listen to a podcast or put on old sitcoms on YouTube to play in the background. So soothing.
