Midnight Garden
Tiffany StrongStone
This is my Midnight Ghost Garden located at my Marleybone Royal Estate. All the plants that I have planted here have turned into a permanent ghostly elder. They shall remain this way until a new gardening level is introduced. These plants here are predominantly Key Limes and they are known for their high EXP levels. Unfortunately, due to the inactivity here in this garden, it has attracted some mysterious other worldly creatures. Ghosts, bats and all things spooky have taken refuge here and seem to be attracted to my elder plants. I am a Legendary Gardener and am hoping for a new gardening level soon so that I can get rid of these spooky squatters once and for all.




Summer
Vanessa Dreamfinder
Vanessa Dreamfinder enjoys a stroll in her Mooshu style summer garden after a days work in the spiral. She has planted corn, cabbage, carrots, summer squash, lettuce, tomatoes and a variety of herbs. This makes it easy for her to made a healthy summer salad or a great veg soup. She also has a few chickens so she has fresh eggs to go along with it. Yummy, I think it is time for lunch now. ENJOY!!!


Little piece of Heaven
TabithaSword

Welcome to my little piece of Heaven. Where the trickling sound of the water fall just carries you away. And there is nothing better then the fresh smells after a light rain, like the smell of rich dirt after digging to plant a new seed, Or the fragrance of the honey sickle trees, its one you will never forget. But the best is the smell of the cornbread tree after a day in the warm sun, just like cornbread fresh from the oven. MMMMMM. This is my favorite place to be when the day is done. So come grab a hot cup of tea sit back relax, close  your eyes and enjoy all the sounds and smells in My little piece of Heaven.


Spring
 Katie
This garden design is about when spring has arrived. When all the flowers have bloomed like the cherry blossoms and the elephant ears. The unicorns have also come out to see spring arrived and they see the flowers bloom, and they dance and gallop with joy.


Ringing in Spring
Sydney Storm
The Red Bell Pepper rang in the arrival of spring.  This brought forth the Tiger Lilies and Laugh-O-Dils which danced and swayed in the sun's 
warmth.  The joy the plants felt at the arrival of spring soon attracted some magical pixies who joined in the fun.  This is my happy little garden.

Avast! Me Mateys! There be Bunk house Themed Winners!!!

Congratulations!!

We had some amazing entries. The judges decided that the tie breakers would be on how your companion fit in the bunkhouse.
Week one winners!
First Place
Two Faced Anne
He and his family have an amazing country home in Cool Ranch but the back yard, well that just screams Roster Cogburn's personal getaway. Roster likes this hay thrown haven because he can setback and throw down a bottle or two of good old 'Yum' after a hard days work. The lavender shrubs provided him a wonderful aroma, a nice change after a day of smelling the dusty trails. All-n-all it just an amazing place for a roster to relax!

I ask him about the pots in the left corner of the picture and Roster told me they were a gift from Cloud Rider over in Bison Village for running in a pesky little thief. Think I might have to visit Cloud Rider a pick up a few for myself. 

Second Place
Bailey

My favorite companion by far is: KAN PO! ( as you may see we are practically twins XD). That was my first companion ever in Pirate101 and I love it not only cause of that but as well cause I trained it well and it comes from my favorite world in both Wizard and Pirate as well it is something that connect Wizard and Pirate ( exist in both games ). 



I arranged  this bunk house for Kan Po like this cause He always travels so much with me that he doesn't have time to visit his hometown. Kan Po's room, there for, have all commodity so that his friends and family can visit him: Shrine, place to rest and meditate, fresh plants from Moo Shu as well big dinning room freshen with some orchid smell :)

Third Place
Clever Luke Lawson 
My (new) favorite companion is Buffalo Bill. I made my bunkhouse for him! I know Buffalo Bill would like the house because it is circus themed like his traveling circus show. Also, because there is lots of the desert-ish plants that suit his background in Cool Ranch. Also, there is a table behind my pirate with spare guns for Bill. Finally, I believe Bill would love my bunkhouse because I made it just for him, and if he's as good natured as he is depicted in the game
  
Week Two Winners!!

Clever Gilroy Brewster
Ship on stormy seas,
Captin's cabin where I be,
playing games til dawn!

Third Place
Rylee Sharp

The windlane is rough
The Crimson Bounty rides high
Ships bob up and down

Week Three Winners!!
Judges were able to get done early. Not very many enteries.
First place
Impish Ivy Ivey
Ambassador Downley
This is my vision of MarleyBone bunk house. I made this house for Ambassador Downley.

Even thought well traveled Ambassador Downley miss her home MarleyBone quite often. She think the elegance and style no one can carry on such as MarleyBonian's can. That's why her home is inspired and arranged in MarleyBone style in many segments.

Since her home is also office ( working place ) where she is receiving guests from all over the spiral she wanted to share with them the design that MarleyBone is well famous for. And what better way then by showing a bit of MarleyBone to guests then through walls of her own Bunk House. Isn't she a great Ambassador or what?

Her home have working, waiting and resting areas. The working area is filled with working items as well items that Ambassador got from her many travels and that represents other worlds where she have been. The waiting area is for all her MarleyBonians that came to visit her. The design of furniture is costume made so that her countryman's can feel comfortably and like they are home. The resting area is where Ambassador is spending the most of her time when she is free: by Fireplace. There she relax with some tea, from the comfort of chairs, remembering, both worlds she have visit so far or home. 
Her Bunk house is like that: A great reminder and album of both worlds she came to love and her home. Every aspect of her home is designed like that. And she loves that! Even she is very often outside of MarleyBone she carry it everywhere she go ... In her heart and in design of her Bunk House.

Second Place
Reckless Phoebe Jellico
Judge Burble
Hello matey's, I am Reckless Phoebe Jellico and I am here to welcome you to Judge Burble studio apartment. As we know the Marleybonean society is built upon the rigid ideas of class and manners. Wealthy elite Dogs live in luxurious mansions, never mixing with the middle class craftsmen and tradesmen. But Judge Burble is the exception to this rule. When he visits Isle of Dogs it is a call of duty for him; he is here to put away thieves and robbers. However, he still must have a luxurious place to stay and entertain from.

If you have a look around you will see he has all the luxury a studio apartment can provide. Wonderful views, lavishness setting, Baby Grand Piano and Cello for beautiful music. There is a office set up in one corner of the room and a dinning area setup in front of an extra large window affording the best views of Isle of Dogs to be had. I know what you are thinking, there is no place to sleep, but alas matey's there is a Murphy Bed tuck away in the wardrobe with the most luxuriousness bedding one could imagine. 

Third Place
Dead-eye Justin
HANDSOME DAN'S REFUGE
Handsome Dan aka Peanut Butter loves to travel back to his homelands of Marleybone. Sadly this will be has last time back for a while, as it is a war zone right now. This Bunk House has everything a Marleybone blue coat loyal would love! The entrance is a nice Marleybone railing, in front is his bed and some miscellaneous crates. Once you step in you immediately see Peanut Butter's War Layout, although most of the island on the table is most likely destroyed in Marleybone it still makes a nice center piece. He also has a nice blue lounging area. Right from the couches is his Desk, on it lays, a Grizzleheim Ship-In-A-Bottle, his favorite pistol, and a map. Across from that is a nice anchor candle holder and his piano. Yes, Handsome Dan is a professional pianist! Next to his piano is a cannon, for good measure. And a rotating globe for plotting and scheming. This Bunk House is up for rent at an astounding 150,000 gold a month - better balance that check book! On his walls are his criminals he has caught except for El Toro, they have an understanding. He also has a Royal Marleybone Flag, a Marleybonian antique Blimp Poster, and a poster of Westminster Skyway!

Week Four!!
First place

Tiring Horace Zabra


One-Eyed Jack is a sneaky, tricky little rabbit! We all know of his establishment The Black Spot and of his rental business on Flotsom but you never hear talk about where he lives.  I'll tell you this it not at The Black Spot or on Flotsom that is for sure.  It is a well keep secret but I know where it is and I am going to let you in on it. One-Eyed Jack lives on a small, undeveloped island called Horace Island. It is his own private sanctuary away form all the hustle and bustle of Flotsom.  It only provides for the bare necessities of life but One-Eyed Jack has big plans for developing a grand tourist resort here. Mums the word for now.
Second Place
Terri

Although a lot of pirates believe One Eyed Jack lives in a mansion, being the business rabbit he is, he set up his home in one of his warehouses next to the Black Spot Inn.  This allows Jack to keep an eye on his business and he can be there in a hop, skip and a jump should the need arise.
Third Place
Autumn


i think one eyed jack would live in a bunkhouse over the black spot. he rents rooms to all the pirates in the spiral who need room and board.. even some sketchy pirates.  one eye jack has an eccentric style that i admire and love so i figured his theme bunk house would sort of match his clothing. so what do you do with all the gold you are making when you are an owner of your own floating hotel? you have the nicest bunk house there is! i don't know where exactly one eyed jack's origins are but i'm betting he's traveled all over so his bunk would be a cluster of things  from his favorite places in the spiral sky ways.  i feel his bunk house would be as homely as welcoming as his pub the black spot. even though he is a tricky little bunny you have to admit  his tricks are funny.
