Springtime is in full bloom, and it just seems like these weeks sail by quicker as the year goes on. But that's alright, because it's time for another Feedback Friday!

Standard disclaimer applies: We do not guarantee to use each and every idea submitted, and questions we pose may or may not be pertaining to things we are currently working on, or will ever undertake. Sometimes, there are just technical limitations that make changing things difficult to impossible, and though we possess all manner of magic wands here, there are technological beasts out there that are beyond our grasp. Sometimes, we may not feel it is within the spirit and vision of the spiral to add or change something. Also, we realize that some of these topics may have been addressed before in other threads - sometimes it's good to pick up a discussion again. Chances are I have read your threads and would like to hear more!

This week, let's talk about housing items. What is your ONE favorite housing item that's currently available and why? Exclude plants and gardening items if you would for this week's purposes, and let's just focus on decorations for your humble (or not so humble) abode.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh, that's a tough one! I guess I would have to say my favorite is the aquarium!

My favorite housing item has to be the "Lynx Gazer" it is a painting found in the myth school behind Cyrus drake. It is a picture of an anthropomorphic lynx glaring upward to the sky in snow fall. It's actually pretty nice.

I always place it above my wizards bed

The Statue of Hyottoko is my favorite housing item.(But I hear that it's a retired drop, which I hope isn't true) A Ninja Pig with a Shuriken really shows off the ... Ninja-ey-ness I guess is the word, even if it's made up.

Mine is the lava fountain. Is it yours too, seeing as your fire?

Narrowing it down to one would be tough, but I think what sets the tenor of my home's exterior are the trees...be they snowy pines for the ice house, or a cherry tree in blossom for a MS house, it would be trees.

i actually like the mannequins. if i see an outfit on a boy or girl character that i really like i will make a copy of the outfit and dress up a mannequin. so far i only have one made up. a buddy of mine had a cool outfit when he was questing in mushu. so i made a male mannequin and dressed it up with a copy of his look. and put it in my dining room in my crafted watchtower hall. he stands behind the counter in front of the rootbeer barrels. i have an ice mander running around there too.

i wish we could craft a sword, wand, and staff rack to display our wand collections on! i have an almost complete collection of mushu swords. i am only missing the death sword for lvl 40.

Pets! All of the pets I hatched and didn't turn out right, pets that didn't get the talents I wanted, or rare pets.

Pets were the sole reason I started buying houses for my wizards because I felt bad for them being cramped up in my dorm room.

But, the other thing I like the best about my castle/houses is the personal spiral door that allows me to teleport from anywhere in the spiral and instantly be at the front door of any world I have access to.

The portrait of Selena Gomez.
Too bad I didn't get them for my other wizards. :(

Oh Professor you are making it hard on this wizard. One item, wow.
This weeks one item I like is the pavilion crafted furniture piece. Why? Because you can make just about anything with it. You can interact with it by going up the ramp and set things on it. If you get really creative you can make new looks altogether.

Thank you again professor for these wonderful Feedback Fridays .

This is tough because there are so many housing items I haven't experienced yet. I do love the statues though. My son picked up a unicorn and I was like man I want one of those!

To bad he couldn't put it in the bazar cause I was ready to pay top coin for it! I really like the additions of the minigames as well as the challenge circles but not sure that counts as a housing item. But what I'd like to see is a way to que for matches from my houses battle ground.

I'm still working to make an aquarium but I crafted the grandfather clock and love it. I like the fountain too there are just so many items I enjoy I need more than just 250 slots to place stuff!

I would have to say the crafted stone pond. It looks good as part of an enchanted forest.

Well, I would definitely have to say I like the soft padded red / blue chairs. They just look so comfy and inviting. I use one or two around the wooden table with books or something on the table. I see them and it makes me feel like "there's no place like home." :-)

I would have to say the mannequins because you can dress them up to look like something else (very helpful if your trying to make a certain kind of house) and the pets (because you get to see them roam around, again helpful when trying to make a certain type of house).

I rather like the dragon bust. I put it over the area leading inside the balance house, almost as a warning to all who enter. The look of it is cool anyway. :)

I don't have a favorite piece, but I do have something to say.

THANK YOU Johnist for remembering The Veterans of this country.
Since I have seen your collection I wish others could see it too.
