This boot is definitely scootin’ right along. These old muscles after a while remembered holding that pencil for hours at a time. Slowly, very slowly the puzzle pieces accumulated and that is when I found myself becoming very excited. The overall effect of the boot filling up with puzzle pieces was a bonus I hadn’t anticipated. The blue had to go though. I decided that an over all black and cream theme would make the puzzle pieces speak for themselves. I really wanted the eye to be drawn to the puzzle pieces themselves.
The black looked fantastic! Above the puzzle pieces, not so much. Too dark and heavy. The slate gray was perfect, neutral enough with less weight. Much more balanced and easy on the eye. Just as I had hoped for, you see the puzzle design first, then the boot.
I am pleased as punch, as my grandma used to say! This boot is mine and I can’t wait to fill it up with all the chrysanthemums that have started blooming in my yard. Every time I see it a smile will definitely bloom from the fond memories I have of building jigsaw puzzles with my Grandma Cirner and my Mom.
Till next time…………. Cyn
