This is a tale of a little cottage that dreamed of being in a fairy tale. Ever since it was a wee sliver, it would listen at it's mom's knee to "Once upon a time". It turns out living a fairy tale is much harder than it appears. When the little sliver grew up to be a cottage, it searched the world over for "happily ever after". As often happens in these tales, the little cottage came upon a fairy, who was a witch in disguise. After completing a series of tasks, it was granted one wish. It wished to be the star of a fairy tale. Wishes do not always end up as you want. The fairy/witch renamed the cottage Fairy Tail. This made the cottage sad, so it went to live out its life on a small island. Many years later, a kind woman found it living on the island and knew it was her dream come true. She moved in with her two cats, Hansel and Gretel, and they all lived... (probably) happily ever after.

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.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. 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.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

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.

Interesting house, it definitely fits in really well with the Supernatural expansion while still using basegame objects.

This is absolutely gorgeous! I put it by the river in my newly emptied Moonlight Falls and it looks dead pretty and fits in so well with the town. I love it!

@tasteslikesailor glad you like it
The pictures are done by using velocitygrass's brilliant mod, found here: http://www.modthesims.info/d/478307...01-16-2014.html I use the cheat version. You place a picture from buy mode, and use the casT to change the pattern on the picture frame. Then open the cheat window and type: deco o This will remove the overlay and give the entire picture the pattern from the frame. It is best to close casT now, and then reopen it to change the pattern to whatever you want. You can even save the new picture as a preset. If the overlay removal doesn't stick, close casT and then try again. Good luck!
