Two Fantastic Four Puzzles - 100 Pieces Each

Well, I ran into a problem with the Spiderman puzzle so he will get his own post!  But here are the frames:

Blurry again, sorry!

And the finished pictures for the two Fantastic Four puzzles.  Every piece was there!

This one was weird - the bodies are drawn but the faces are either from the movie or a TV show.  Very badly done, too - I would have expected much better.  I've seen photoshop projects by twelve year olds that look better, lol!  The kiddo will like it, though.

This one is much better!  All drawn, no weird, creepy faces!  I like the Dr Doom statue, too.

Next Project(s)

There were three kid puzzles in the yard sale puzzles I bought, once more I checked them before our wee fellow tries them out!

The picture is a little blurry, sorry about that!  They are already at my Mum's house now.  I'm not going to drive you all crazy with a separate set of posts for each one!

100 Cows and a Chicken - 300 Pieces

 photo cowdone_zps420d3dd8.jpg

18x24, by Ceaco.  This was from the yard sale loot!  There was another, but it is 750.  100 Chickens and... I don't remember what else! This one was hugely fun and very fast!  I did it all in an hour or so, just 5 minutes here and there while I was cleaning house.  I think it was June 4th.

Last of the Yard Sale Loot - for now!

Here is the last day's visit results - 11 more pretty, pretty puzzles!

I have been told the lady has a few more boxes to go through and that there may be more, but she's not having the next yard sale until July.  So we will see then!  (This loot is from the end of May - I am way ahead on my posts!!!)

Have you ever seen a row of grumpier kittens?  I laughed all the way through putting their faces together!

Second Yard Sale Haul

This is what the next day visit got me - 15 more puzzles!  And yes, one is a Puzz-3D!

One is a box set of four, lest you believe I cannot count! Lol!  And also - I was asked to come back yet one more day!!!

Mona Lisa - 54 Pieces

Quick and fun!  For once I did not even do a frame shot : D

There was no company name that I could find - everything on the little round box was in French.  She's about 6x11, maybe?

Unnamed Round Puzzle - 58 Pieces

 photo rounddone_zps71e84bff.jpg

Technically, 57 pieces since one is gone.  About six inches in diameter, and the single thickest, sturdiest little puzzle I've ever worked.  Too bad it's so battered!  by Tuco, and I still haven't gotten the date.

Next Project

This is the first of my new yard sale projects - it is very, very old!  I forgot to look for a date on the box, and it is currently at my mother's house (she's almost as much of a puzzle fiend as me anymore) so I will update the post when I get it back.

Unfortunately, when I opened it, this note was on top:

I worked it anyway, of course.  Finished picture tomorrow!

Yard Sale Score!

I stopped by a yard sale on my way home - just to check for puzzles.  This is what I loaded my car with!

 photo ys1_zpsb7296a65.jpg

32 puzzles for the stash!  And I was told to come back the next day and there would be more!  And there was!  Which I will show that picture later!

Puzzle O'Doom

I took these pictures around May 20th, maybe?  I've barely touched it since then, I had to rearrange furniture and it currently has several cork boards laying on top of it.

And some close ups of the pixellation, I think you can see it.  Even these pictures are better than real life, though.

Disney Princess - Snow White - 100 Pieces

 photo snowdone_zps62e34fb7.jpg

This one is 11x9, made for Disney by Cardinal Corporation.  Probably cost as arm and a leg new, but I have to admit, it's a nice sturdy little puzzle.

Next Project

This is another yard-sale purchase for the grandbaby - he's a boy, but he'll work any puzzle you put in front of him.
