In our family...

,,,Christmas is all about family connections, and puzzling it all out.  John chose a great puzzle to work on this year, and I couldn't help but take some close-ups of some of these intriguing pieces.

As we move into 2018, I'm sure we're all wondering about this!


I wish for you a compass that always points to true north.


May your direction follow a clear path,


with interesting diversions as needed.


Here's to hitting the jackpot every. single.  time. ,


in a world filled with glorious colour.


May your life be rich with extraordinary texture,


 and pattern,

 and may you always be considered the epitome of Dudedom.


 May you remain strong

 in your own personal Game of Thrones,


 and may every enticing portion of the universe be shown to you.


May you be aware of each of these,


 and share them with beloved friends and family.

And in the end, may all the pieces


 come together to make a beautiful artwork.


May 2018 be all your wishes come true.

  6. Have a wonderful Happy New Year and when the fireworks are over and the horns fall silent, after all is said and done and the dice are rolled and the chips have fallen where they may...I hope all your days are sunny side up and life's garden is coming up roses for you and when you shut out the light at the end of each day that you know you are blessed...Past that, That is one heck of a puzzle you put together, I love it. Best wishes always, Deann.

  14. Wow, it's never occurred to me to look at puzzle pieces individually as pieces of art! What an unusual and refreshing idea! And guess what's on my blog today? It seems to be puzzle season when people have extra time to play with! Yours looks like quite a hard one!

    1. I can hardly do a puzzle without enjoying all these little vignettes of beauty; each piece seems to hold a complete world of beauty, even without making connection to the others. That's rather like people, I think! I'll be popping over to your current post to see what's happening there, Zsuzsa...I'm guessing there's some puzzling going on!

  15. See, in all my excitement about your puzzle, I forgot to wish you a Happy New Year, Win! May 2018 bring you lots of happiness! xx
