Planting a Garden

Another puzzle that I was pretty excited to find at the thrift shop, a manufacturer that all the Instagram puzzlers rave about – Eeboo Piece and Love. They are sold in Vancouver stores but I’ve never bought one new, they can be quite pricey here and they do look like they’d be really simple. To date I’d only ever found a mini 36 piece puzzle by them at the thrift store so I was pretty happy to find this one last week.

At first, I didn’t really understand the hype, I was surprised the pieces had a paper backing, which isn’t really my favourite, I prefer the plain cardboard backings.

But, after a little while of working on this, I realized it was a really nice sensory experience. is that weird? The pieces were so glossy but not in that annoying way, they were soft and felt almost velvety. The colour saturation was also really impressive! Look at how brightly coloured these flowers are!

I was right, in that it was a really simple puzzle. All together I think I spent about an hour and a half on it, I suppose I’d spend the money if I knew I’d do this puzzle over and over again. But this particular one, the image is bright and happy but I only need to do this one once or maybe twice, at the most.

My final thoughts? If I found another one at the thrift store, I’d definitely pick it up. If I found one that I knew I was going to complete multiple times… I’d probably buy it new. It’s a great quality puzzle! This was 500 pieces and complete.
