This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

After emptying the bookcases and shelves, I was left with all this clutter laying around. So, what to do with it? Give it to you, of course! The set includes 20 clutter items all in one package or packaged separately. All are priced at 4 smls. and can be found in Deco/Misc. Enjoy!

eta: I just realized BabaYaga had already uploaded the trunk and the jar o' beans. My trunk is shelf size, but the bottles are the same.


black box = 42
square candle = 18
two candles = 60
wicker chest 64
dog frame = 22
frame 1 = 32
frame 2 = 22
frame 3 = 22
frame 4 = 18
frame 5 = 32
frame 6 = 18
frame 7 = 18
globe 1 = 84
globe 2 = 92
deco bottle = 80
lantern = 40
plant = 146
plate = 40
seashell = 24
snow globe = 58

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Great clutter set, but for some reason the plate is crashing my game every time I try to place it.

Yay, even more clutter! Thank you!

Clutter items always seem to have problems in my game, i want to know if your sure these will work with Generations?

22 I will give him the key to the house of David. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.
#38 Old 15th Jun 2011 at 3:45 PM
I have Generations and they are working with it just fine.
Thanks a lot!

Awesome! I use the decorative plate a lot, it's my personal favorite, but they're all great for lived-in touches! Thank you!

I, too, have Generations and it works like a charm.

Great pack! There was never enough 'clutter' items in Sims3 for my liking to really personalize each room and home.

Do these still work?
Test Subject

These used to work fine for me before, but after installing showtime, my game freezes completely whenever I click them in the buy menu.
It would be awesome it you could have a look at this issue so I ant others having this problem can clutter up our sims's homes again.

I am experiencing the same problems as Duccea. The game would crash as soon as I touched the picture frame with the dogs. My save game seemed to be borked too, but luckily it started working again once I took the mod out.

It's a shame, I loved them!
