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.
UPDATE 01 Mar 2015: If you want the Free Time bookcase, Please re-download the new attachment. I forgot to commit the guid.

Finally Finished!

EA gave us the Value Counter - the single most useful counter in the repertoire but without any add-ons. It's also my favourite counter. :D

CTNutmegger gave us a lovely upper cabinet.
MsBarrows gave us a matching Island.
Previously I made a matching hood alarm.

But it wasn't enough...

So here are 5 more pieces with slots to make a complete kitchen.
Also a collection that includes all these 5 pieces, plus the counter, island and hood alarm. (so if you haven't downloaded those - go and do it!)

As usual, I'm using Piggi's EA Value Counter recolours. iCad has just done some brilliant recolours as well



Details-

All pieces take their textures from the EA Value Counter.

Additional Credits:
CTNutmegger for the Upper Cabinets of which I used the meshes and copied a lot from them. Kat, you're awesome!

Leefish, the person - who is encouraging and supportive and taught me how to slot. She is a fabulous teacher!

Leefish, the community - that has supported and encouraged me and tolerated the many many pictures as I worked through the problems with them.

Piggi (RIP) - who recoloured all of these counters, so I didn't have to.
(Her recolours are at Sims2Graveyard, on Box and at Blacky's Zoo)

Fabulous! I love me some addons, especially for this counter. Yay for cheap-but-nice-looking, once recolors come into play. Thanks for making/sharing! :D

These look great, and I can never have enough places to put clutter! I did run into a small issue: the bookcase overwrites the Maxis "Bibliofile" bookcase. I'm using the FT version of the set, if it helps.

Other than that, great work!
