Jigsaw Skittles and Posts of the Week

A couple of posts back, one of my favourite bloggers, funny lady Ethelmae Potter asked me when I was going to make another jigsaw puzzle out of one of my photos. Well the answer to that question is "right now!" This one is for you, EthelMae.

My cat, Skittles keeping a close eye on things.

The puzzle was fun. Thanks for the mention and for new blogs to explore!

Tabor said...

Let's see, I am all alone for the month and I have promised myself to be more prudent with my time and to NOT spend so much of it blogging and photographing and here I sit completing a puzzle and now going to read all the posts you honored!!

CiCi said...

I have come to look forward to your weekly recommendations, Hilary. I am off to visit the blogs now. Hope you are having a great week.

Pat - Arkansas said...

That one beautiful green eye gave me a head start on the puzzle, but I couldn't get some of the border pieces to move, so had to resort to "solve."

Brian Miller said...

OK, seriously, I really AM not worthy, but I'm glad you enjoyed that post. It's worth it to go through misery if you can give other people a laugh. Thanks, Hilary! Off to read the other winners!

ethelmaepotter! said...

Oh, thank you Hilary, both for the compliment and the puzzle! I got it, but just barely! Great photo, as usual.

I'll be very busy this week and may not get around to visiting, but my congratulations to all the winners!

PS - more jigsaws, please!

First of all, thanks so much for the POTW honor. I'm thinking of it as a shout out to the greenhouse and their brilliant idea. I'm behind in my post of the week reading but sooner or later I do read and enjoy every one of them.

I do love your puzzles and I love cats so this post was especially fun!
