On your marks, get set, GO!
Today, now that a few weeks have passed since the competition opened, I am pleased to share my selection with you.
It was with great pleasure that I discovered each of your creations to be more original than the last! Right now, I want to congratulate everybody. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us and thank you for taking the time to imagine all this. Bravo!
I, therefore, in my best conscience selected 12 creations that I most prefer.
Here we go:

#1 – Aenhir
“The Middle Earth hides several wonders of antiquity, one of which is the Golden Tower of Glorendel, built at the dawn of the Second Age as one of the most distant watchtowers the Noldor maintained in the Hithaeglir (the Misty Mountains), even before Elendil the Tall founded Arnor.
Since then, long years have passed and even the elves left and forgot this tower, which however was discovered by the river hobbits who settled Lyndelby, and preserved the tower as a tribute to the awe of beautiful people.
Even if today its upper levels are abandoned and empty, many mysteries and wonders of ancient wisdom still lie in the deepest foundations of Minas Glorendel.”
#2 – Cementarri
“I wish I had the ability to create something really out of this world but I’m just too grounded in the soil and in all things natural. Hoping this spot would be inviting to anyone wishing to while away a few hours listening to the soft ripple of the fountain while a gentle breeze caresses their cheek.”
#3 – Dorfast
“Gandalf and his 12 apostles.”
#4 – Erzamel
“Here’s Pinkman’s farm, organic pipe-weed, hand-grown and dried, 100% Shire… well, that’s what is written on the packaging…”
#5 – Innovation
“Sam racing to the festival to see the new decorations.”
#6 – Izabeaux
“It’s perpetually autumn in this little corner of Bree-land. The soft rugs and glowing fire beckon weary adventurers to spend a peaceful evening with their favorite book.”
#7 – Moskin
“Today’s feature is the aquarium in the Lyndelby marketplace of Moskin Gardens.
Come see the aquatic feature and the rest of the beautiful estate & luxury shopping experience at 2 Glenmouth Path, Bangurith, Lyndelby on Crickhollow server!”
#8 – Nooby
“The “Erebor Phighting Pheasants” practice for a game of Capture the Golden Egg at their home stadium as the team owners view from the sky box suite.”
#9 – Numendur
“A quiet evening in the palace antechamber”
#10 – Othlenor
A grassy indoor arboretum where one can find peace and comfort… or take a nap.”
#11 – Truk_Deco
“A Belfalas Manor of a high Lord.
Theme: Past Kings ; 6 Bay Road, Tham Elenath (Crickhollow).
These rooms depict upper Atruim rooms designed for relaxation and rest where one can enjoy all the joys of nature and all comforts of a closed atrium roof together with the tranquil sounds of flowing fountains and with some local wild life. Stay for the weekend then return to your normal routine a renew soul.”
#12 – TweediaBlue
“A Tranquil Grove“
