Home Sweet Home 1,000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle Review


Disclosure: I was sent this puzzle in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I have to confess--between the pandemic and winter about to begin, I have not really been motivated to do anything. Yesterday as the snow fell my biggest achievement was going out to fill the bird feeders. They were busier than ever with the snow. They still are. I loved sitting and watching the snow and the birds. Today isn't much better. However I finished this puzzle quite a long time ago and have been meaning to write the review but just haven't gotten to it. So here it is. I have been writing reviews of 1,000-piece puzzles in my Mommy Time Reviews. I am going to include a round-up of them as well as the five puzzles on my to do shelf! I just need to make space to do one. Lately my puzzle space has been filled with diamond painting instead.

Today's puzzle is Home Sweet Home 1,000-Piece Puzzle by Irene Smit and Astrid van der Hulst, Editors of Flow Magazine. It is my second puzzle from Workman Publishing. I have really enjoyed their puzzles and find the quality to be wonderful. Both puzzles have been by the editors of Flow. The pieces actually have a back design to them as well which can be confusing at first but you figure it out very quickly.

The publisher's description of the puzzle: 

This puzzle features an illustration from Dutch artist Lotte Dirks, and it is filled with her love for everything that grows and flourishes. As you piece it together, you may find your imagination drifting down a winding country lane, to a white picket fence with an open gate, to a yard where the flowers bloom and chickens range freely, to a special place where you can kick off your shoes and just be yourself.

I found this puzzle relaxing and fun to work on. The colors had enough differences to not drive me crazy but also enough similarities to challenge me. The greens of the leaves as well as the flowers were each a bit of a challenge. I started with the house because it was the only blue pieces to put together. 

This puzzle comes with a mini poster of the picture as well as having the picture on the front of the box. It gives you two references when working on it. I found this one went together quickly for me and I really enjoyed it. As I mentioned the quality of the pieces is wonderful. 

Now with the holidays quickly approaching, I wanted to share all the puzzles even the ones I haven't gotten to in case you still need some gifts! Puzzles are amazing family gifts especially since they are saying we will be social distancing until at least the summer.
