I love to have puzzles sitting out to work on a little bit of a time. The one you've posted looks hard!
Wow - congrats! Yes, I´d love to find a globe like that - we´ll see what I stumble upon eventually..! :-)
My daughter and I love to do puzzles. We spread everything out on the table in the living/family room and usually it takes several days. I cherish the togetherness.
