Vintage Themed Word Puzzles


Jessica over at Chronically Vintage, recently published a vintage-themed word search on her blog. Being a big fan of word problems myself, I thought this was a brilliant idea and had a lot of fun solving her word search. I thought I would try making a few puzzles of my own as well. My puzzles aren't fancy and interactive like Jessica's, but if you click on the image it should open a page with just the puzzle which you can then print out.

The first puzzle is a vintage-themed crossword. I'll admit there is definitely a 1920's bias in my choice of words. The clue for 2 down got cut off, but it should read "...and beauty products". The second and third puzzles are cryptograms. I've included some letters to help you get started. To give you a hint: the first is a quote from a silent film star and second is from a mystery writer. 

Enjoy!











I would love to know if anyone solves these puzzles. Answers will be posted next week!

  2. I love cryptograms! So glad you made these, and they are such lovely quotes too. I'm still struggling with the crossword though!

    1. Thanks :) And yeah, the crossword may be difficult. It's quite hard to tell what is too easy and what is too difficult when writing clues.

  3. These are splendid, dear Kate! I'm delighted to know that my word search post spoke to you so much and helped inspire this fun entree of your own. I needed a peaceful way to unwind after one of the busiest weeks I've had in ages, and doing your puzzles here before finally calling it a night tonight will be just the ticket. Thank you! (And thank you, too, for the wonderfully nice mention in this post.)

    Have a fabulous weekend!
    ♥ Jessica
