Puzzle Me This!

Maybe you remember my post of my “Bizzare Bookshop” puzzle earlier? Here’s a picture of it; it is now hanging on my bedroom wall.

This bookstore really is bizarre, lots of weird things lying on the shelves, and all the titles are puns on classic stories!

I also had two more puzzles to complete. I love puzzles almost as much as I love books, so to be able to do puzzles of books is a-m-a-z-i-n-g for me! Ravensburger makes the best puzzles, ever. And believe you me, I have done my fair share of puzzles.

The next one is finished, and hanging on my bedroom wall. This one is “World of Words”. This took less than a week.

The one in progress is “Sanctuary of Knowledge”, which is taking me already two weeks….I did this one last year and one of my girls took it and put it in their room. Fair enough. I have just really been struggling to sit down and work on this: holidays, back to work, MBA classes started……

And the toughest, but my favorite Ravensburger puzzle? “The Last Supper”. A very close friend of mine from church bought this for me and my girls. 3000 pieces. Took us all 6 weeks to complete it but it has been hanging on my kitchen wall for over two years and I love looking at this. Every. Single. Day.

    I love puzzles too and these are gorgeous! I’ve never framed one but it’s a lovely idea. At our library we have a free jigsaw swap section, which is quite popular, and we’ve recently started a jigsaw club once a week when you can come in and have a go at a puzzle with a free coffee and biscuit!

      I wish they would do this at my local libraries! What a great idea! I cannot bear to take a puzzle back apart after I spent so much time getting it put together, so I definitely work on puzzles I am proud to display on my walls.
