The Little Red Rose

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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This time I bring you a small glass vase with a red rose and another with some palm leaves, to decorate your sim rooms.
Took me a few tries to get this right
I'm still only recycling game meshes, so I stole the vase from the Narcissus, the leaves from the Perma Palm and the rose from the Sunflower Vase (with my rose recolor, see here).
Both are in the Plants category and cost 40§.
Enjoy!


Polygon Counts:
Red rose: 240 faces, 181 vertices
Palm leaves: 431 faces, 280 vertices

Additional Credits:
The pillow in the screenshot is from Summer Afternoon.

and a huge big thanks to Wes for the help!! If you're not there I wouldn't be uploading anything now.

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.

Very nice indeed. Perhaps one the prettiest actually
Can I ask where you got that mini bookcase in the picture?
And the circular-bowl plant on the shelf - that can be recycled too?

thank you

so cute!!

Your creations are like one of the most creatives content for the sims 3!

Most content we can see is always a conversion, or reminds sims 2 content, or looks like something that we already have in the game.

But your little items are very refreshing and so well done!
thank you so much.

It's from the Sims Store, the bookshelf from the Ultra Lounge Teens Set. I just placed it inside the dresser (which is also from the set). We cannot clone Store items for obvious reasons, so no I can't take that plant out. I think most of the bookshelf plants aren't very nice anyway, low on detail.

Wonderful. I also disliked that awkward looking rose in the game and never use it. This however, I *will* use.

Thank you, Lemon Candy.

Um... is it just me that gets an empty vase?

Always choose short hairstyles for your clothing models!
My Sims 1 stuff is still available, because some still play the original game.
