Vintage Springbok Puzzles. A Puzzle In The Home: Slow Mind Revolution.
When one makes a big move from one long occupied home to a new home,
life necessitates that a whole bunch of stuff goes in to storage, to be
unpacked (or not) at a later date. Lately we have been making runs out
to the old house to clear out what we left stored in the barn. It is a
bittersweet task sifting through a life left behind. One particularly
sweet recent find is these delicious vintage Springbok puzzles, lush
with birds. I don't recall where I originally found them - there is a
vague memory of a yard sale in Peru, VT... At any rate, I am so glad
they survived the moving purge. It is a lovely thing to have a puzzle
in progress in the home. Something to mindlessly pause before for a
moment and experience the satisfaction of fitting the pieces together.
P.S. a wee announcement. Congratulations Ann Marie - you won Lala's March Give-Away - a divine little aqua bud vase. Just in time for the coming wave of spring and summer flowers.
