A few years ago I put together a 5000 piece puzzle and I swore I’d never do it again. Not only does it take too long, but at some point it stops being fun. But, in February I was looking on ebay (a wonderful place to get puzzles) and saw this beautiful puzzle of Florence, Italy. We were finalizing or trip to Italy, so I bought it. And started piecing it together in February. And did not put the last piece in place until last night. October 24. Obviously I took time off here and there, but still… I’m never doing another 5000 piece puzzle again. Really.
A special thanks to those of you who came by the house and took the time to put in a piece or two. It may have taken me another month to finish without you!
5000 piece puzzles are expensive and I’m willing to give this puzzle away, but I won’t pay for shipping. Once I put it back in the box I’ll weigh it so you have an idea how much it may cost to mail. If you are interested, let me know.
EDIT-I’ve mailed this on to South Africa.
