    I don't know what to make of this yet because I'm not sure what kind of a house I could design that would be impressive enough for people from other shards to want to come visit merely to see it. However, I think this could cause some interesting designs in Legends and I'm definitely going to be spending countless hours trying to make the perfect house.

    Witches make horrible decorators,*mumbles* especially this witch! My Witches of Cove log cabin is located north of Cove Villiage along the west coast of what was once Lock Lake.

    Mind you witches aren't exactly good housekeepers so beware of creepy crawling things and things that go bump in the night !
    This particular witch likes all things creepy and pretty so you decide if I should even enter and let me know :)

    Thank you
    But I have to say I'm more than a lil disappointed to be the only entry... I've heard talk of others entering yet nothing else was?!



    Let me add, it was a team effort also, much credit goes to others.
