This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
"In the bleak mid-winter,
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter,
Long ago.”

by C. Rossetti

- Lot size is 3X4
- Hack-free (checked via Clean Installer)
- Unfurnished because, well, it’s in ruins
- For best results, install with the Sims2Pack Clean Installer, found here:

Custom Content NOT Included:
- NNNNatali’s winter recolors of the Maxis baytree, found here:
- NNNNatali’s winter recolor of the Maxis rosebush and hibiscus, found here:

*NOTE: The lot has been upload without NNNNatali’s exquisite tree and bush recolors. Instead I have left the Maxis originals in place, so just download her recolors and apply them as I have in the pictures provided. (I found that with her recolors, the lot’s size only increases by 10kb, so I highly recommend them.)

Custom Content Included:
-Custom wallpaper, terrain and tiles by V1ND1CARE

* Please DO NOT upload this lot, or any of my other works, to the Exchange and/or any paysites without my consent.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Life is like toast! Sometimes its golden and sometimes its burnt. Now go make me some toast- thats an order.
Whilst you was distracted by toast, I took over the world. Yes now you must make me some toast because I'm the queen.

Beautiful. Reminds me of the house where Edward Scissorhands lived.

nothing beautiful is ever perfect
#19 Old 27th Jan 2007 at 11:33 PM
I almost thought I was looking at a picture of a real building. This is excellent, I love the way you make your lots come to life (even if it is a ruin).

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

Remind me something from Aleid ruins from TES4 but in any case it's a stunning lot for the Sims 2 ! It can give a special touch to the neighborhood too. It's a beautiful work V1ND1CARE. Congrats for featuring you deserve it ! Thank you !!!

I can spot your work a mile away. This is so haunting and lovely.

Your work is pure poetry.
