Assembly.....

I did not do my usual sorting routine with this one. I laid all the pieces out onto the foam board and sorted out the border which went together fairly easily. Sorry, missed out on those photos for some unknown reason ;)

My one work-in-progress (wip) shows that I started with the brown patch inside the wreath and as much of the shelf beam as possible. After that I assembled the popcorn and red/white ribbons along with some of the larger ornaments.

From that point on it was basically looking for odd shapes to locate the matching colors to complete the image.

There are 8 very lovely images below that share close up photos of the delightful ornaments, most of which look vintage. Springbok has a whole series of the Keepsake Christmas puzzles and this is the 2nd one I located at the Thrift store - both did not have the Ornament that actually comes with the box when purchased new....not that I expected it too ;) 

Comments


Also, it looks like this Springbok puzzle ran into some water damage as you can see on the image to the right the lighter beige circular area on the back causes some slight damage and swollen pieces on the front. But even that did not spoil the Springbok puzzle experience!

Should you have the opportunity to locate the Christmas Keepsake jigsaw puzzle I highly recommend getting it.

The above jigsaw puzzle(s) have been added to my Puzzle Hobby Tracker 

I am in the process of recording all my past jigsaw puzzles that I still have for my walls and all my current puzzles.

Then I have the TO DO list that I am adding from my collection.
