This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

EDIT: Oh. Wow. I am a huge lummox, apparently. I forgot to upload the pile of books and the pictures. Will someone shoot me every time I upload something, to remind me to actually include everything?? :D

'Ello 'ello. Last month's WNF aspiration set theme was gothic, and this was my addition to it.

This set requires no EP's, but the seating pieces are also available with pet interactions for those of you with the Pets expansion pack.

And, as you may have guessed, this set uses the repository technique for happy recoloring. The Arm Chair and the Pile of Books are required for the rest of the set's textures to work properly.

Aaaaaand, there's a lovely collection file so you can find all this in your catalog. Enjoy!

Absolutely gorgeous, I have all of your sets for the house I made for my self sim, so much of it is stuff I would buy in real life. I especially loved the bedroom set. Thank you so very much and keep up the fantastic work.

I nabbed this from WNF but I just have to say how much I love the set, especially the seating, I have no idea how you get your textures so perfect, are they all hand drawn? Anyway, thanks, love it :D

As always, absolutely stunning! I especially love the Alice in Wonderland pictures in the frames (last moth I did a whole Gothic piece based on them for an art assignment, so its still stuck in my head. )

I redownloaded it but I still am missing the books and the framed pictures? Are they in there somewhere, I'm not seeing them. I went through all the files and yep, no stack o' books or pictures.
