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.
I made some stuff... I guess the young kids might call this a "mash-up"... meaning it's just a bunch of stuff that only goes together if you mash it, I think...

Anyway, this is just some stuff...

My favorite thing in this bunch of stuff is the cat statue. It's based on a set of three hand carved wooden cats I just bought off of the e-bay. They are really cute, and so are the ones I made for the game I started off with wood textures, and then on a whim made some stone textures, and they look really cool...

My second fave thing is the new outdoor shrub, it's just another of those ground cover type shrubs that I like so much, nothing special really, but wow I think it looks really nice in the game... I almost hate to bury it in this set, because people might not find it if they only go to the garden section...

Lemme see... so the other items are

Snapdragons in a Glass Bowl...

Snapdragons in a Glass Bowl made for 2 tile table so it lands in the middle like it should

These are in the sculpture area

Round and Square Wooden Planters...
3 different sizes of Both
Made with the same mesh as the ground shrub...

These are in the Decorative Plants

A larger Sun wallhanging YOU NEED SEASONS FOR THE SUN bescause all I did was resize it...

4 different 'Plant Stands'
also known as tiny little end tables and coffee tables...
2 versions in a stone finish, 2 versions in a smooth wood finish...

Ok I think that's all of it...
Check out the pics underneath for specs pics
I hope you guys like it

What a nice idea, to have these planters in our game. I love these. And the plant stands are a great addition too! The sun has always been a favorite of mine, so thank you for the color variety. This is such a great patio/garden set. Thanks for sharing your hard work. The cat is adorable I must say.

Khaki, this set is so cool! A very unusal mix but each piece looks great. The cat statue and the larger sun are my favourites, but it's really hard to choose. Thank you, your work is a precious gift. Kiss and ciao.
