Country Cottage

This is quite the work of art! This is a collage of beads, embroidery, and vintage paper dolls. I had actually done this puzzle once before, returned it to the thrift store because it was incomplete, bought another one last year, forgetting that I had done it before, Joe reminded me that I had, and this week I pulled it out of storage and put it together.

To find that it was incomplete! Is it the same one? That’s the question, and the answer is…. no. This one only has one missing piece and I seem to recall the other one missing two or three.

This is a 500 piece Springbok puzzle dating back at least to the 1980s and it is missing one piece. Maybe one day I’ll find the complete version of this puzzle!
