    No rules, just houses! Or a boat, if you really live off a boat. :}

    Here's my current, Trammel, Moonglow. The first floor is empty, because I'm filling it with statues of Moonglow's past occupants who are no longer with us. But the rest is pretty decorated so don't mind the emptiness.

    Zynia, that is VERY impressive work on the rooflines. I have never gotten the hang of doing roofs, mine always come out looking like hammered bat****. Very nice work.:)

    My Malas tower. The second floor isn't shown as it is simply fountains and chest right now while I decide what to do. Nothing fancy, creative decorating isn't one of my strengths lol.

    I was so disappointed with the "fire pit" I thought it was going to be way cooler. I love your forge stove and kitchen area :}

    I totally missed your reply! Thank you! It took forever to figure out a design for my 14x10. Everything I did made it look like a trailer, lol. Either it was too roofy, or not enough roof. Then finally I made this design, and knew it was a keeper.

    Thank you, Betty! This is just decoration, designing, anything. I didn't limit anyone, and I asked for a sticky so we wouldn't be flooding the forums with millions of threads.

    I absolutely love your storage house. What a wonderful way to use the area and mask the crates so they blend, and have easy access in such a small area. And as always, amazing collection, you know I'm a fan. :}

    Tessie, I miss your old sig! Wasn't it from a Danielle Steele book or something?

    And, I am interested in the origins of that white Fur rug too!

    DKHD and Black Betty, the white fur is A Daemon Hide, and it's an event item from Pacific. From what I heard, there were three in that shade and three that were a little bit darker. But I could only afford the one! :)

    Black Betty, if you're asking me about an old Danielle Steele-related signature then you must be thinking of someone else, since mine has been some variation of my current sig all along. ;)

    Hello there! Unless one of your character names is Tessie, then it was directed at DKHD, hon.

    Thanks for the info on that 'rug'. Good to know actually in case they begin popping up in bulk! :thumbup1:

    Ah. I didn't know there was any connection between "Tessie" and DKHD. I thought it might be some odd shortening of "Techthys." Oops. :blushing:

    Those, collectively, are the ugliest houses in Sosaria. My disabled cousin could do better with a laptop mouse and only one hand.

    *insert pvp, non trammy related comment here**

    ZOMGS! Lets see how funny we can be and get the thread off topic!

    As if I cared about house deco. A house is just a big bank box to me.

    Even the boxes you throw all your useless junk in, is house deco. So you must care, unless you have every item in your house locked down on every tile of your probably ugly elven walled boxy house.

    Don't confuse organization with decoration. Two entirely different things.

    To be organized, is to have something to put those items in. How you display them, is decoration, ugly or pretty, whether you like it or not.

    Incorrect. I am using boxes to store items and organize. See below for a definition of the word "decoration", as well as a site reference. I am not trying to "beautify" or make anything more attractive.

    decoration

    noun
    1. something used to beautify
    2. an award for winning a championship or commemorating some other event
    3. the act of decorating something (in the hope of making it more attractive)

    You can keep posting, and keep denying your deep dark secret for your love of decoration as much as you'd like. But I know the truth.. You secretly want blaze campions and bright red bulrushes throughout your home. Oh, you want a blaze parrot too, so you have somebody else to remind you, that you really pwn people and be all "Welcome home, God. How was the gate today?"

    So unless you're going to post a picture of your so you say, undecorated home, or comment on the above posters. Toodaloo.

    Re-read the string of responses and tell me how anyone could conclude that you were talking to someone other than me? Heres how it went.

    Lynk: blah blah blah, random insult, blah blah, your houses are ugly

    Zynia: Wheres yours? :)

    No kidding Einstein, I WAS talking to/about you. I just wasn't talking about your house, but that little (emphasis on the little) point was lost on you. No surprise.

    In the context of time Zynia darling, it can also be "whenever", not just "whatever".

    IE: Whenever he shows it off, he gets laughed at.;)
