I love puzzles but have no interest in the ones that just show scenery, so I usually have to special order something I want to put together.  I recently ran across some that I haven't seen before by Victoria Frances.  I think they would appeal to those who like this category, as I do, so I thought I would share it.  I happened to be looking at a company web page for Jigsaw Jungle when I saw them, but I'm sure you could search to find them.  I have not bought anything from this company yet so I have no idea about prices/shipping, etc. so I'm not recommending them or anything.

I did a little looking around after the first post and here are some more, a few even better than Victoria Frances maybe:

Luis Royo's puzzles: http://www.jigsawgallery.com/searchresult.php

Chris Ortega's puzzles: http://www.jigsawgallery.com/searchresult.php

Octavio Ocampo's puzzles: http://www.jigsawjungle.com/code/catalog.htm

I hope the links work, I don't use that feature very often. 

ETA: I don't think I did it right, it gets you to the right site, but not the actual puzzle page.  For the Royo and Ortega puzzles just search for the artist's name, to find the Ocampo puzzles go to the Heye puzzles in the 1000 piece section (these are not as good as the other 3, but one is an optical illusion and kind of fun.

I like a couple of the Royo's, but the Victoria Frances are definitely my favorite!!!  I think I may order a couple of them :-)

Now if I could only get someone to put them together for me so I could do the puzzle fixer thing and frame them. I suck so hard at puzzles. I can't concentrate on them at all. I get two or three pieces and then something distracts me and I leave it and never finish it.

LOL Chris,

I showed them to my DH and he says "Well, buy the ones you want and then we can frame them"

So I looked at him and said "And will the magic puzzle fairy be joining us to get them put together so that we can frame me?"

hehe

I am a puzzle nut, almost as much of an addiction as reading :) These are wonderful. I looked at ordering one that is listed as L13.99. After convrsion and shipping $42.51. Ouch. Unless you are framing for use as artwork, its kinda steep. Of course I am kinda cheap.

Yeah, that's a little too steep for me as well!!!

Maybe you could find another site that sells them for cheaper?
