Small Delft Tiles

Just one item this time -- Dutch-style Delft tiles, which are glazed tiles handpainted with a blue design on white, depicting birds, flowers, people, and other objects.

I made these a while ago, and didn't upload them right away, because they're a bit blurry close up, and I haven't been able to correct that; but I've been using them a lot and thought others might enjoy them anyway. They look very realistic from a little distance.

They have their own beveled edges/grout, so they will look like tile whether you use them on a tile material wall or floor (like the tile wall in the first pic), or on another surface (like the countertop). (Some tile patterns look like linoleum if you put them on a non-tile surface.)

The pattern has three channels: background, foreground, and grout. They're in the Tiles and Mosaic sort.

Delphy, HP, and the pattern creation community for all the great work

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. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. 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.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

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.

Cute... just like grandma's house (well, if I had one, lol)...

A grandma I mean, I have a house

If at first you DO succeed, try not to look so astonished!

I needed new and appealing walls for TSM. I lucked out and viewed an older post you made referencing mods from TS3 being compatible with TSM. I clicked the link you posted, and tadda! I got 'em! Thanks!
