You know it’s still winter when you’re still in jigsaw puzzle mode. It’s too cold for gardening and you don’t want to spend all of your time reading and jigsaws somehow fit the bill.
I just had to buy this one of The Trossachs, because it’s just about my favourite part of Scotland and I also love the artwork which features in these old railway posters, plus this puzzle came with a print of the scene which I can frame and add to my wee collection of reprint British Railway posters. The artist was John Littlejohns and it was painted in 1930. You can see more images of his work here. You can see more images of The Trossachs here.
Somehow when you see the puzzle all finished, it doesn’t look like 1,000 pieces, but it is. I could hardly fit them all on to the table to begin with – now for the next one!
