This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a simple upload of some countertops for the Manor House Kitchen set so that you can enjoy a little more variety. You will find no formica or laminates here! Only the finest quality stone and wood for your gourmet kitchen.

This mini-pack features many colors of slate, granite, marble and wood, including a "green" option of reclaimed (recycled) wood probably scavenged from the wreckage of some poor sim's home that was unceremoniously bulldozed while he was still in it.

Set Contents:

-black granite
-champagne granite
-salt and pepper granite
-white granite
-black marble
-grey marble
-charcoal slate
-grey slate
-butcher block
-dark cherry
-reclaimed wood
-stainless steel

I cannot remember a house I've built in game without either of your kitchens. This addition makes it all that much better. That's a bunch.

I saw your mansion in the featured downloads bit on the homepage, and I checked it out, and downloaded it. I'm so impressed that I've actually downloaded everything you've uploaded for us, which I've never done with any other creator on here. Also I've never commented on any download/object/set, this is my first comment - showing how impressed I am. Thank you very very much for providing such a fantastic collection and improvement to my game. I'm simply replying to your most recent upload rather than every single one, but be sure I'm equally delighted with each one.
FANTASTIC work, thank you. =)

I love your work. I wonder, I know you say that you don't take requests and thats fine but could i possibly nudge a hint? I have and Ivy leaf kitchen and i love your sets there gorgeous but none of them seem to suit my ivy kitchen. Perhaps a green marble counter top, and some green dishes? Also i love your Ivy garden, and the manor dining table.
