Impulse purchase

I am not sure why I bought this - the world's smallest 1000 piece jigsaw. The pieces really are tiny, smaller than
the nail on my little finger - and I've got little fingers! I have started wearing reading glasses which
means I certainly wasn't thinking very hard when I bought this. And I don't even do jigsaws which
makes it more of a mystery. If I'm to be honest, I think it was the tin appealed to me with the pretty scene of Americana. Pity it wasn't cookies which were in the tin and then I wouldn't be filing it under the
category of impulse purchase.

I think Doug touched on a really valid point, without a scale reference we have nothing to conclude that this is indeed tiny.. a smart move...

Oh but what satisfaction you will feel when you finish. It will be a wonderful way to waste time!

Hmmm...are you a masochist? That looks maddening. Very nice macro ;o)

I enjoy jigsaw puzzles except when you can't seem to find just one piece that fits "someplace" and you won't quit until you put a piece in the puzzle! Great image.

They can be a lot of fun, but I would have a problem with pieces that small, too. A very nice shot, by the way!

Great looking image and a wonderful pass time. We have built man puzzles together, especially during the holidays and it's always a lot of fun. Our last jigsaw puzzle was assembled last Christmas. It was just laying on a table in the family room and guests and family worked on it when they wanted. A true team effort. Enjoy yourself!

LOL! The tin does look very pretty... I'll look forward to seeing the made up puzzle... maybe! ;O)

I had a jigsaw phase a few years ago, never finished one of them! At least yours is small enough that you can leave it out for a few days :o)

LOL, I know what you mean - I usually do this with food, the kids end up looking at me all askance when I unpack the shopping!! I like the tight composition here - the inclusion of the pencil is a clever touch to help see the scale of this tiny jigsaw...very nicely done, Mairead :o)
