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.
Here are some holiday decorations for your simmie's homes. There are 5 new meshes: 3 single snowmen, a group of 4 snowmen to match and a box of ornaments. If the single snowmen look familiar- they are from last year. They've been updated so they can be placed on fireplace mantles and the textures were updated. If you have the old ones, replace them with these if you want them.

The small and medium snowmen are slaved to the large snowman, so you must have that one for the other two to work in game. The group of snowmen is not slaved to the large snowman, but there are 2 subsets so you can use all 4 textures at once. The box ornaments in the box are the ornaments from the Maxis Christmas tree. They are NOT slaved to the tree ornaments. I personally hate the textures on those and wanted to use my own and I wanted them shiny! Ornaments are shiny! All can be found in Decorative>Misc for 15 and 25 Simoleons. NOTE: The ornament box is on the high poly side for a 1-tile object. The ornaments were taken from the Maxis tree- lowering the polycount didn't work out well, so I left them be.

Credit goes to Pixelhate for exploring the TXMT so others could learn (shiny!shiny!shiny!) and KiaraRawks for her toybox - I borrowed the box part to edit (and the clean texture) since the box was just the size I needed.

Polygon Counts:
Lg, Med and Sm Snowmen - 134
Snowman Group - 528
Box of Ornaments - 1544 (Maxis Ornaments)
