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.

I never really liked having the Seasons decorations box hanging around my houses, I didn't like having these plastic tubs stacked in the corner somewhere. Especially playing mostly in old style houses, it just didn't look right.

So I added the decoration box functionality to some other items. A barrel, chest, and present pile.
Only the present pile opens up, the other 2 may look strange as your sim plunges their hands straight through the lids.
These items made sense to me to use as alternatives, I also added bows and ribbons to them to make it a bit more festive

The presents have 3 swatches, the barrel has 5, and the chest has 40

This is NOT a replacer, it will add 3 new objects

hey, i have a request, can you make the vampire coffins (the version when they're open when the sim is getting in) into bedframes? (the cc versions you can mix-and-match bedframes with mattresses)
