royalfamWhen we were cleaning out the barn at my parents’ house, we found hundreds of jigsaw puzzles that my mother had collected through the years. My mom quite often had a puzzle going on a card table in a corner of the house when I was growing up. I was the cheeky one who always hid a piece so I would have the glory of placing the final piece.

In recent years I have rediscovered the lost charm of making a good puzzle. A couple of winters ago I spent most of my free time making puzzles and I really enjoyed it.

Recently, I discovered the Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Company, a British company that makes old-school wooden jigsaw puzzles – and they are very cool.

About The Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Company: “The Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Company has been producing exquisitely crafted wooden jigsaw puzzles since it was founded in 1994 by Kevin Wentworth Preston. Using computer controlled lasers and state of the art technology, Wentworth has become known for its quality and design, and supplies in excess of 150,000 puzzles a year in over 35 countries around the world.”

The Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Company offers all sorts of puzzles in various shapes, sizes and levels of difficulty – truly something for everyone.

I like this one depicting a painting of The Royal Family in 1846.
