    Halloween 2006 Whinny The witch, cartoon Vampire house
    Cannibal Chicken Cult Halloween entry
    Shamu the Killer whale fish tank (This one I cannot find anywheres!!!)
    Baja Xmas Gingerbread house...2009 I think

    saddened at this loss, Voluptuous, I remember each of those houses and they were all outstanding

    searched thru my whole photobucket page hoping I had snipped them :(

    Which reminds me, I need to get out to some of the pumpkin patches today, before the pumpkins disappear for another year, and grab some small ones for deco...

    Startle, all of those houses were just as amazing... what some folks, like Sarsmi and Voluptuous can do with the ordinary in-game items always leaves me with my jaw on the floor.. the Shamu fish tank, a whole house fish tank! and it's the attention to detail, like the black cat in the upper window here, that make the designs special..... if you've never seen it, search around for the McDonald's house, I know I passed pics of it while looking for these that were lost

    and, you prolly know this, but you can buy little pumpkins or you can steal them, year round, from farmers... stolen and store-bought sit a bit differently on the tile

    LMAO.... That's why I'm still paying evey month for this game after 14 years... I learn something new almost every day! What a kingdom! I had no idea you could buy them from farmers, since I do NOT think that I have EVER clicked on a farmer in my entire UO life...

    OMG Kit, that is truly AMAZING! Thank you so much for finding/posting it for us.... I may have to do something like this for my Malas 18x18... Do you know if this house still exists?

    One question - see pic below:

    Yup origami fish. I usually save my screenshots with the person's username in the file name - so all I know is that this screenshot was saved via a user named Cass. And he/she had an awesome zoo house, too! :)

    Yes - origami paper is a rare drop on fandancers. Fish is a further rare chance which you can only get if you fold the paper while drunk.

    kudos to Baby Doll, that is a geat tank!

    and Voluptuous, I must be remembering the tank in Baja Luna, cause the one I see when I picture it had a more blue and white look to it and I think the Shamu was more centered

    ya i used water tiles for Baja luna. Shamu was way more streamlined and flawless my second attempt (more clothing choices by then i guess). I had added a giant jellyfish and clam by then too.
