It was fun—included snowy London streets—and maybe you can detect the Old Curiosity Shop in the foreground, house of Ebenezer Scrooge, lots of taverns and street peddlers.  It’s true that there were a lot of lighted windows—-and rooftops.  But somebody had to do it.

Next!!  The Olde Skating Pond scene by White Mountain Puzzles, also 1000 piece.  Wonderful winter dreaming!  Stay tuned . . .

    Oh I am so impressed! The Dicken’s Village is a sight to behold! You must have loved doing all the windows and streetlights and people etc etc. (Well, “loved” and “g-r-r-r-ed” now & then.) I feel I’m there as I look up and down those little streets. The new ice pond scene is also beautiful — love the sky, and the subtle colors on the pond. You are having fun!

  2. thanks for comment, Mary Jo! btw, if you click once on the puzzle picture, it enlarges. If you click again, it enlarges even more! And you can move the screen around a bit for full picture. But you probably already knew that . . .anyhoo–makes it easier to see some of the little shop names.

    This is wonderful and manageable. There was an article in one of our UK papers yesterday about a woman who had done a jigsaw that had taken up one entire wall of her living room. She’d stuck it up there piece by piece. Now that’s just silly. There are ways of redecorating and ways of redecorating but that isn’t one I’d choose:)

    ut-oh … how about just a small scene … Spring will be here and you may regret what cabin fever did!

  6. Love, love, love puzzles. We once gave my grandmother a 10,000 piece jigsaw; of course our only choice was floor space, which she couldn’t handle, but we did get it done for her. Took forever, but a great memory!
