I love the little roads, rivers and farms. I think every piece is just slightly different, making it fun to look at the final picture.
Besides the nice landscape that it makes, it's a bonus that it's actually fun to play! It's one of the few games we have that takes very little setup, little strategic thought and only two consenting players are required. In a house where we're all busy, that's a very good thing.
And another pattern I've always liked:
A nice line of matching mugs.
The girls like their mismatched, personal mugs, but I like the symmetry of plain white matching mugs. Their mugs remain hidden behind closed cupboards, but mine are now on display hanging below my new sink shelf. One more Lenten project complete.
