Fall Into September shares a series of 'end of Summer, turning into Fall' jigsaw puzzle images we have in our collection.

Brand: Hennessy Puzzles, Title: World Map, Pieces: 1000. Size: 19.25

Brand: Hennessy Puzzles, Title: World Map, Pieces: 1000. Size: 19.25" x 26.75". This Hennessy came with a poster of the map and a little extra. You can email in for a 'Memory Magnet" which is kinda cool - haven't seen any other companies doing that! Being a map with lots of blue might be testy however using my strategy I did not experience any frustrations - actually this puzzle assembled quicker than I thought it might. I highly recommend this puzzle. The World Map jigsaw puzzle. World Map Jigsaw Puzzle 


Title:  Arctic Coming to Life, Brand: Vermont Christmas Company, 1000 pieces, Artist: Jan Patrik Krasny, Size: 30”x24”

Title:  Arctic Coming to Life, Brand: Vermont Christmas Company, 1000 pieces, Artist: Jan Patrik Krasny, Size: 30”x24”.  The Arctic Coming To Life has been on my wish list for quite some time now.  Also, I have never had the opportunity to try the Vermont Christmas jigsaw puzzle Brand.  Now I have accomplished two desires here. One being the image and the other trying this brand. I was not disappointed! Arctic Coming To Life Jigsaw Puzzle 


Brand: Ceaco, Title: 52 Pickup Cards, Pieces: 500 shaped puzzle, Size: 23.5 x 17.5

Brand: Ceaco, Title: 52 Pickup Cards, Pieces: 500 shaped puzzle, Size: 23.5 x 17.5". 
I did not do my usual sorting routine with this one however I did do some color sorting only for organization purposes.
Forget trying to do the border - I never accomplished that until I was 2/3's done the puzzle.
I kinda played around with the idea of which would be the easiest approach - should it be the red cards with borders or should I just work as much black pieces as possible. The King-Queen-Jacks were just too complex and there were not too many so I did not even bother with them till near the end. 52 Pickup Cards jigsaw puzzle   


Brand: Galison, Title: Cool Cats A-Z jigsaw puzzle, Artist: Carolyn Gavin, Pieces: 1000, Size: 20

Brand: Galison, Title: Cool Cats A-Z jigsaw puzzle, Artist: Carolyn Gavin, Pieces: 1000, Size: 20" x 27".The finish is very nice on these Galison jigsaw puzzles and the piece quality has a nice feel and is very good. It comes with a poster, the pieces are bagged in thicker plastic than most puzzle bags and the box is solid, plus pretty. There are many other terrific images at Galison's Puzzles which I happily recommend.  Cool Cats A-Z jigsaw puzzle  


Brand: Paper House, Title: Fender Guitar jigsaw puzzle, Artist: n/a, Size: 12

Brand: Paper House, Title: Fender Guitar jigsaw puzzle, Artist: n/a, Size: 12" x 36", Pieces: 500. The Heal, neck, fretboard, nut, machine heads and head stock were the easiest parts to assemble. I just blew through them. The bottom half consisted of a few shaped pieces such as music notes, guitar pics and 2 'F's' for the Fender. Fender Guitar jigsaw puzzle  


Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Great Horned Owl, Artist: Simon Bolyn, Pieces: 1000, Size: 26.626

Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Great Horned Owl, Artist: Simon Bolyn, Pieces: 1000, Size: 26.626" x 19.25". I just dug in with shades of green...once I got as far as I could go with green, I changed to dark brown, then light beige, then whites, then back to dark green, then beige rocks. I moved along at a steady pace and with the use of the shapes I felt the challenge was not as bad as first anticipated.  Great Horned Owl Jigsaw Puzzle  


Brand: Sunsout, Title: Wildfire, By: Diana Casey, Pieces: 500, Size: 19

Brand: Sunsout, Title: Wildfire, By: Diana Casey, Pieces: 500, Size: 19" diameter.

So the loose cut, the colour blends and brush-strokes made for a challenging experience, however the completed image returned the reward of achievement.

Sure do appreciate the artwork on this one!

Brand: New Guild, Title: Golden Albuquerque New Mexico Hot Air Balloon Race, Pieces: 1000, Size: 27.5 x 21.5

Brand: New Guild, Title: Golden Albuquerque New Mexico Hot Air Balloon Race, Pieces: 1000, Size: 27.5 x 21.5".

This puzzle has been with me for over 30 years. It is mounted to press-board and has window shrink wrap plastic sealed on it. It has kept very well. Hot Air Balloon Race jigsaw puzzle   


Brand: Cobble Hills Puzzle Company, Title: The Four Seasons, Pieces: 2000, Size: 39.25

Brand: Cobble Hills Puzzle Company, Title: The Four Seasons, Pieces: 2000, Size: 39.25" x 26.625″. 

With so many different clusters of images, I was basically building these clusters within the puzzle board, like the Snowman, acorn and flowers shown on the image on the left side below. Therefore I had many small sections I continued to build on.

I felt I was finally over the hump at about the halfway mark when the big sections started to slide into place. At that point it became mostly smooth sailing to the end.

Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Diary of an Edwardian Lady Jigsaw Puzzles - 4 Seasons, Pieces: 1000, Size: 19.25x26.625

Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Diary of an Edwardian Lady Jigsaw Puzzles - 4 Seasons, Pieces: 1000, Size: 19.25x26.625. Celebrating the Fours Seasons. I certainly can appreciate the artwork involved with these puzzle images which are clear and crisp, especially the fine text. Diary of an Edwardian Lady Jigsaw Puzzles 


Brand: Master Pieces, Title: Tetris, Game: Tetris, Pieces: 500, Size: 9

Brand: Master Pieces, Title: Tetris, Game: Tetris, Pieces: 500, Size: 9" x 27". Bought brand new and wrapped at Thrift Store for $3.00. There is only a small 'full' image on the back of the box so a magnifying glass was required and I took a picture and blew it up on the computer screen - that was VERY helpful. The images gives a little bit closer look at the pics to see the great smooth quality of the puzzle pieces - it's great when the pieces lie flat and not bumpy or bent. Tetris jigsaw puzzle  


Brand: Springbok, Title: Solstice Floral, Pieces: 1000, Size: 24

Brand: Springbok, Title: Solstice Floral, Pieces: 1000, Size: 24" x 30".

I don't know flowers so I cannot give them names but I think the orange ones are Tiger Lilies (I could be wrong). I had to identify the pink flowers by their patterns which was doable but tricky.

The background 'sprigs' (I'm calling them) which are the whitish colours were fairly easy. That left the dark green patches which were assisted by the shapes of the pieces. Thank goodness for the shapes of the pieces!

Brand: Cardinal Puzzles, Title: American Harbour Sunset, Artist: Dominic Davison, Pieces: 1000, Size: 20 x 27

Brand: Cardinal Puzzles, Title: American Harbour Sunset, Artist: Dominic Davison, Pieces: 1000, Size: 20 x 27". This puzzle was built from top to bottom which has been a first for me in quite some time so I expect that is due to this type of image scene which I do not assemble often. It comes with a box lid easel and reusable, sealable bag, both which are very nice extras. Harbour Sunset jigsaw puzzle  


Brand: Karmin jigsaw puzzles, Title: Chakras Design, Extra: Mandala - Assemble then color, Pieces: 500, Size: 16

Brand: Karmin jigsaw puzzles, Title: Chakras Design, Extra: Mandala - Assemble then color, Pieces: 500, Size: 16"x 20". Very sturdy box.
The pieces are quality board made with Earth Friendly recycled product. The surface on the pieces is dull flat for colouring.  The pattern is consistent with no really odd shaped cuts but still slightly unique. It was a medium-hard challenge and referred to as Adult colouring.  ALERT! - be warned about the type of markers being used (read review) Mandala Colouring Jigsaw Puzzle 


Brand: Cobble Hills Puzzle Company, Title: The Cat Library, By: Cobble Hills Creations at Russell Books, Pieces: 1000, Size: 48.9 x 67.6cm or 19.25 x 26.625″

Brand: Cobble Hills Puzzle Company, Title: The Cat Library, By: Cobble Hills Creations at Russell Books, Pieces: 1000, Size: 48.9 x 67.6cm or 19.25 x 26.625″. Books and cats in a puzzle image is an all time favorite for Puzzlers. Once I completed this most delightful puzzle image, I took a photo of each cat as they are SO adorable which made this puzzle such a joy to assemble. You may see them all close up in a video in the review. Cobble Hill Puzzle Company sure made a winner with The Cat Library jigsaw puzzle 


Balloons, Tiger and New York City 14

Balloons, Tiger and New York City 14" Round, 350 piece Jigsaw Puzzles by Lafayette Puzzle Factory.  One thing I like the most about Lafayette Puzzle Factory is their images which makes them most attractive along with their low price. Balloons, Tiger, NYC 14" Round Jigsaw Puzzles  


Brand: Sure-Lox, Title: Northern Exposure, Pieces: 1000 shaped puzzle, Size: 37.25

Brand: Sure-Lox, Title: Northern Exposure, Pieces: 1000 shaped puzzle, Size: 37.25" x 22.5".

Since this was a shaped puzzle I sorted the pieces as best I could for color but did not lay them out onto the foam board. I could easily identify the border pieces as they all had a white edge which ended up having the missing piece. Northern Exposure Jigsaw Puzzle  


Brand: TUCO, Title: MT Blanc France jigsaw puzzle, Pieces: 700, Size: 22

Brand: TUCO, Title: MT Blanc France jigsaw puzzle, Pieces: 700, Size: 22" x 15".  I've been around so many Thrift Store puzzles and have had very few bad experiences however this one will be labelled the worst yet. I get the age of the puzzle has a lot to do with it too. Surprisingly ALL the pieces are there but some are peeling off and the colour layer of paper is peeling off the back pieces too as shown below. MT Blanc France jigsaw puzzle 


Brand: Gearheads Puzzle Shop, Title: Love Bug, By: Anslee Connell, Pieces: 500, Size: 22.5

Brand: Gearheads Puzzle Shop, Title: Love Bug, By: Anslee Connell, Pieces: 500, Size: 22.5" x 16.5".

For some reason I must have been so enthusiastic to get started on this one I totally forgot to take a picture with the border completed but it went very well. It was easy enough to pick out the greens, blue and lettering so they were assembled first.

Then I worked my way down the side of the vehicle leaving mainly the black (dark) and white (shades) left. Love Bug Jigsaw Puzzle


Brand: Ceaco, Title: Classic Cars, By: Jim Zuckerman, Pieces: 1000, Size: 27

Brand: Ceaco, Title: Classic Cars, By: Jim Zuckerman, Pieces: 1000, Size: 27" x 20". The Classic Cars jigsaw puzzle was really quite daunting for a puzzle image to assemble. I spent a lot more hours on each area that I normally would for other 1000 piece puzzles. This being a Thrift store purchase, I am pleased all the pieces are available which is always like a little bonus. Classic Cars jigsaw puzzle   


Brand: Great American Puzzle Factory, Title: Cruisin' Classics, Artist: Lewis T. Johnson, Pieces: 500+, Size: 36

Brand: Great American Puzzle Factory, Title: Cruisin' Classics, Artist: Lewis T. Johnson, Pieces: 500+, Size: 36"x 11.25". On the back of Cruisin' Classics jigsaw puzzle is the image with the vintage cars numbered and then a list with the title of each car. It too gives a much clear image of the cars than the front of the box. The close up images on the front of the box did not really help me. But the overall experience was fun for the price paid. The quality of the board was good but the cut was loose which meant moving completed sections one piece at a time. I really do like the old vintage cars so I was thrilled to see that this one had all the pieces since it was a previously loved puzzle. Cruisin' Classics jigsaw puzzle    



Brand: Gearheads Puzzle Shop, Title: Chevy Gold, By: Laura Hatcher, Pieces: 1000, Size: 26.625

Brand: Gearheads Puzzle Shop, Title: Chevy Gold, By: Laura Hatcher, Pieces: 1000, Size: 26.625" x 19.25". So using my sorting methods, I was able to pick out the light white/greys and gold/yellow/oranges. These colors were going to be significant pieces to the layout of the image. 
The overall image has several dark color blends so starting with the lighter ones was my first strategy. The letters on the horn, around the horn and the numbers on the speedometer were assembled first. You can see them in close up photos at this link; Chevy Gold jigsaw puzzle  


Brand: Puzzlebug, Title: 1941 Red Chev Convertible, Pieces: 500, Size: 18.25 x 11

Brand: Puzzlebug, Title: 1941 Red Chev Convertible, Pieces: 500, Size: 18.25 x 11". The 1941 Red Chev Convertible jigsaw puzzle by Puzzlebugs is a line from Lafayette LTD based in the USA. Puzzlebugs can be located at the Dollar-type stores at a very low cost. The low cost comes with a 'price' for thinness in the box and board itself. However the images and price offset the low quality. They are very popular and do have fantastic images that are clear, colorful and very attractive. 1941 Red Chev Convertible jigsaw puzzle  


Brand: The Jigsaw Puzzle Factory, Title: Song Birds, Artist: Henry Petersen, Size: 18

Brand: The Jigsaw Puzzle Factory, Title: Song Birds, Artist: Henry Petersen, Size: 18" x 24", Pieces: 550 with poster. These images share the good quality of The Jigsaw Puzzle Factory image titled Song Birds. You can see how well the pieces are cut and the shapes of the cuts. I think that is what made the puzzle move along at a good pace. It's been a while since I did a puzzle with limited cut pieces and forgot how it adds the extra fun to it - I enjoy puzzles where the pieces are quick to find. This puzzle is 550 pieces but 18" x 24" so the pieces are medium/large making it perfect for Seniors. Song Birds jigsaw puzzle  


Brand: White Mountain Jigsaw Puzzles, Title: I Love Canada, Artist: Charlie Girard, Pieces: 1000, Size: 24

Brand: White Mountain Jigsaw Puzzles, Title: I Love Canada, Artist: Charlie Girard, Pieces: 1000, Size: 24" x 30". SO much of the puzzle details are familiar to me so it was easy to pick out several small sections at a time to get this one started. The hockey, baseball, chocolate bars, cheezies and Tim Hortons coffee were really easy to pick out so those pieces just flew onto the table. From there I built on the other Canadian items and/or scenes as you will see in my progress images. I Love Canada Jigsaw Puzzles  


Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Greetings From Canada, Pieces: 1000, Size: 26.625

Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Greetings From Canada, Pieces: 1000, Size: 26.625" x 19.25".  Once the Greetings From Canada and CANADA text was completed it kinda built into the bluish Northwest Territories which built into the surrounding Provinces which expanded that process across the entire puzzle. I am proud to be a Canadian and grateful that I live in this country. This puzzle will be a keeper for the wall.  Greetings From Canada jigsaw puzzle  


Brand: Cobble Hills Puzzle Company, Title:  Canada Parks Recreation Jigsaw Puzzle, Artist: Cobble Hills Company, Pieces: 1000, Size:  19.25

Brand: Cobble Hills Puzzle Company, Title:  Canada Parks Recreation Jigsaw Puzzle, Artist: Cobble Hills Company, Pieces: 1000, Size:  19.25" x 26.625″.  You would have to see very up close the tiny numbers on the Canada map. It is basically a 'key' to indicate where in Canada the Park images on the rest of the puzzle are located. Canada Parks Recreation Jigsaw Puzzle  


Brand: Buffalo Games, Title: Grandpa's Potting Shed, Artist: Steve Read, Size: 38.5

Brand: Buffalo Games, Title: Grandpa's Potting Shed, Artist: Steve Read, Size: 38.5" x 26.5" BOARD ALERT, Pieces: 2000. I didn't even get the border done first this time. I started with piles of colours and placing pieces together. The kittens seemed most outstanding on the green bench along with the red flowers.
Basically what happened after that was sorting the colours according to the items in the image....so things like the radio, tools, seed packets were fairly easy to identify. Grandpa's Potting Shed jigsaw puzzle 


Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Wild Birds of North America, By: Catherine McClung Pieces: 1000 Poster Included, Size: 26.625

Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Wild Birds of North America, By: Catherine McClung Pieces: 1000 Poster Included, Size: 26.625" x 19.25". Sadly in this case there was an 'escapee' piece and even though I scouted diligently, it continues to evade me at this time. Fortunately Cobble Hill Puzzle Company has this link to request a replacement which is terrific Customer Service. It is not just for missing pieces but also for damaged puzzles pieces. It is a good idea to use this service because it lets the Puzzle Company know the condition of their products. So now I will receive a second puzzle and find the missing piece! Wild Birds jigsaw puzzle  


Lafayette Puzzle Factory, Title: Forest Enchantment, Photographer: Bob Langrish, Pieces: 300 (8+ years) Large size, Size: 18

Lafayette Puzzle Factory, Title: Forest Enchantment, Photographer: Bob Langrish, Pieces: 300 (8+ years) Large size, Size: 18" x 24". The company, Lafayette Puzzle Factory, produces a series of Enchanted Horses with 6 in total. Unlike the larger number of pieces-puzzles produced by this company (the pieces are much thinner and flimsy) the pieces are totally acceptable for use with children and/or Seniors, which I would say this one is more for Seniors.
