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.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

I like this set a lot. It is just warm and cozy. The shot of the armchairs in front of the fireplace just beckons you to come in and relax. All that you need now is some eggnog (preferably spiked) and some Christmas cookies to await the holiday. I wish that I had this in my own house. My Sims are so lucky!

11-19-05 Two new lamp recolors. See the dining set for more additions added on 11-19-05.
11-4-05: Recolor of Yggdrasil's towel rack added. Make sure that you get the mesh if you do not already have it. I am now including it in the Downloads section. Look for it below.
11-12-05: Matching sofa (find file below)
Golden Christmas Forest Dining set
Echo rug meshes here at MTS2
Echo's site for rug meshes

The set contains: Three mix and match bathroom walls and floors. Seven bedroom walls and a green carpet that goes with all of them. Tie-back curtains and Curtain Clothes curtains. Lamp, bedding and arm chair. Shower curtain and bath and toilet mats. Welcome mat that displays Merry Christmas to welcome your guests and family. Vertical and horizontal rugs since the pattern has a definite direction, which will keep everybody happy when trying to decorate. The bed curtains in the screenshot are Maxis.

I hope you like this set. Enjoy!

Note: With my Wine Garden set, I notified people that posted to those threads via PM that an addition was added to the set. I am not going to do that again because I had to wait 60 seconds before sending each post. Halfway through it, I was kicking myself, but I always finish what I start. The holidays are fast approaching, so I am not guaranteeing that I will add more to this set, but you never know. With that said, if you want to be notified via e-mail of any additions to this set, please PM or e-mail me with your e-mail address (I do not give any info out and I have multiple back-up protection systems on my machine. I also never open any attachments that I do not know are coming or what it is). Anyway, if you notify me, I will include you in the mailing. I do not know about you, but I never have enough time to keep up with everything that is being offered on MTS2 and because of this, I miss a lot. So, I am going to try this and see how it works out.

My recolor files are always "File-Share-Friendly" and must remain FREE for download (that means if they are included in a house that is posted on a paysite, then the house itself has to be a free download).

A big thanks to Echo for making the rug meshes and Yggdrasil for making the towel rack mesh. And speaking of thanks, do not forget to click the Thank You button if you like this set. I love to read comments and see the Thanked numbers go up.

crystali102: The tree is offered by Maxis for free on their official site. It is a download from last Christmas. And no, it is not in the zips for this set.

Have a bright platinum diamond day!

xalija: The wreath is from the Holiday Party Pack from Maxis. The pack can be bought from EA for $15 U.S. with a choice of having a CD delivered or download the pack directly to your computer.

Have a bright platinum diamond day!

This set looks absolutely beautiful. I don't normally like xmas-themed sets but I just have to have this one!

Thanks for all the work you must have put into this, and thanks for sharing it with us.

I have been using the Green Leaf bathroom co ordinates for a long time, and I glanced at the dining roomm when I came across it. But Last time I looked for Ygg's tablecloth mesh, I blew 3 hour's and still didn't find it.Today I came back to find a part of the green set, and pulled up all your downloads on MTS. Sacred Bovine Females! Now of course, I have to have all of it. I like the WWB set best,the chairs just sing to me. You do very high quality work, thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU! for your generous contributions.
