Two tables are set up in our house for puzzles, our dining table and one extra in the studio. (The family can do their eating somewhere else.)
I want to alternate between two stations because – if I get bored with the puzzle in the studio ( a 750 piece of Montmarte, Paris) I can always jump to a smaller one on the other table. For example a 200 piece with children skipping on a meadow, or kitties with big eyes watching you as you put them together.
I really, really, really like puzzles. They keep this wondering brain present. Jens has photographed me in action for you to see.
As a special treat I also included some vintage puzzles, found on ebay, for you.
Naturally I buy all my puzzles second hand, that makes it more interesting. “Will there be a piece missing and will it matter?” When I’m all done with them I take them back to the thrift store with a note attached, telling a potential buyer that “One piece is missing, but it’s still a very enjoyable build” or if there’s too much sky in the puzzle I might write: “75% of this puzzle is rubbish, unless you enjoy building a blue sky- then you should buy it!”
