Life of Erin

What my life looks like with more arms and at a much faster rate.

Except (of course) for the very end, when there may or may not be one piece missing because said puzzle is likely to come from Unique Thrift, where a puzzle may or may not be what a person thinks it is when a person pays 50 cents for said puzzle.

Puzzle currently under construction by humble hostess (Unique Thrift, 50¢)

The reader is not to assume the reader's humble hostess is spending all of her pre-holiday time doing puzzles. The reader is not to assume anything, ever.

Oy have we got a lot of puzzles and I think none of them have missing pieces. Maybe that would get you to Massachusetts. You wanna pick up some puzzles?

Have fun!

Love, Kath

Oh, I get the puzzle's the woman from the Seurat painting. And her umbrella.

Where is the monkey?

I actually had to look up Seurat, I had forgotten his name. YIKES!

Welp, you "got it" much more than me. I had no idea there was a specific fine art reference. And there IS a monkey on the left side of the puzzle.

I finished this one and there were two missing pieces. UGHville!

It's based on this painting. I'll be damned. Now I like it even more.

Here is the puzzle

Life itself is a puzzle. Its the missing pieces which keep us going.

Without looking around for proof, I'm going to guess that puzzle solving is like meditation. Much like sewing can be for me. It's a treat to see/read about your puzzles! YOU should have won that puzzle design!!

Never leave Krazy Glue on the bedstand next to your Chap-stick.

WHY would you even have Krazy Glue on your bedstand next to your Chap-stick?!?

Hey 'DDP'-"WHY"? The bed stand is far too small for the snow-blower, of course.

Anyway, I wasn't ADVOCATING it.
