Hello, dearests! My birthday was on the 11th, and I can't believe I'm 20! Gaaaaaaaah, time goes so quickly!

A couple of you have been asking about if that floor/wall/etc. in such and such screenshot is ever going to be released, and I've finally stopped being lazy and threw them all together in a build set.

This set has a total of EIGHTY items! 10 colors of cut wood floor, 9 colors of blocky wood floor, sectioned wood floor, and broad wood floor, 8 colors of simple tile floor and wall-covering, 6 colors of marble tile floor and wall-covering, and 15 colors of striped wallpaper. My wrist is pretty much broken!

(I'd post a thousand screenshots, but I'm only allowed a wee little 8.)

I've included a collection file with all of these lumped together so you can find them in the catalog more easily.


Additional Credits:
The brick wall outside the windows is by the incredibly talented Pixelhate. I think I have more of his stuff in my game than I do of my own!

I know you probably hear this all the time, but I am constantly fangirling you. I'm so glad you made more walls- I use your first set all the time! These look gorgeous, and I can't wait to try them out. Thanks.

I usually do not post comments too much, but today I feel the need to do so. First off, happy belated birthday! Second, I love this set, as with the vast majority of your creations, and I hope that you keep making thing for the sims 2, but also I hope that you don't lose the quality and time you put into them.

Thank you!

Oh, Adele... It's so humbling that you are so young and so talented! I created an 'homage to Adele' apartment using only your objects and walls, and it is so lovely. Your work has such a beautiful feel to it. Thank you for your exquisite items!


Unfortunately, I am experiencing an error when I try to download the striped walls:

@ mollipopster-- what are you using to unzip the archive? I'm using winRAR, and it has not given me any sort of error. :/

If only aging would stop there...

These are wonderful. Can't wait to use them in my game.

Happy Belated, Adele! I know how you feel about turning 20. The time goes by so fast.
Thanks for the build set, also. It's gorgeous. Will have to add this to my already bulging downloads folder.

Sure. Fine. Whatever.

I just don't know how much more my computer can handle all your stuff. With cc enabled, it's going super slow, I thought of deleting some but I couldn't!! They're just too precious! From little pile of books to highly detailed skirt with boots you've made, I love them madly.

Another thing, in the future, when I'm old (currently in high school :D) and rich enough, can I hire you to decorate my house? Seriously, your style and colour combination is amazing. You're truly an artist!

Last but not least, Happy Belated Birthday :D
20's a great number, enjoy it while you can, best wishes!

Hm! I am also using winRAR. I was wondering if it was just me, since I didn't see that anyone else has posted about a problem downloading the file set. How odd! Perhaps it will resolve on its own. <toddles off to try again>

Great set! Ty for always sharing your talent with us!
Hope you had a wonderful Birthday~
Yes, 20 is young! And another Birthday beats the alternative!
I was turning 20 when you were born - feels like yesterday my dear! I thank God for everyday, so 20 is good, as is 30..and 40 will be for me this year too!
Thnx again!

What version of WinRAR do you have, mollipopster? If you have an older version, this may be the issue. I remember that I had all sorts of problems extracting archives back before I upgraded to the latest version.

You can upgrade by downloading the latest version from here:

@ everyone else: thank you!!
