Our second clutter box is devoted to the season of autumn and harvest time. It's autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and Thanksgiving is coming up both in Canada and the US. These images are suitable for use as fillers and adding details to your objects and we hope you will find lots of inspiration here!

Some people have been making images or extracting them from the game to share, so there will be many images for this theme added to the thread over the month of October. Don't forget to check back regularly for the latest additions.

When using the images in your own work, please read this thread for general rules of use: http://simblesseoblige.com/viewtopic.php?t=317

Those are great, Ruth!

And here's a few more...

EDIT -- I've re-uploaded these images. The ones posted previously were saved badly, and the result was a low quality graphic.

It's about time that I added a few images to the clutterboxes.

These aren't Maxis images, so the files are still in 24 bit colour to preserve the transparent background when they are downloaded.

Yep. That's all I want to eat lately.

What are pomegranates? How do they taste?

Looks funny this fruit smile:

Pomegranates are a fruit with a strong, thin red skin covering a tough ivory-colored pith that forms a network of large chambers inside the fruit that are filled with the most wonderful seeds! the seeds are each encased in a brilliant, clear red material that is very difficult to describe--it appears gelatinous but it's almost crispy, and very juicy. The flavor is on the sour side, with an almost floral-fruity feel to it. It's like little bubbles filled with the most wonderful wine.

They can be a big hassle to prepare, because the seeds are so densely packed, but if you cut the fruit into quarters and flex the skin backwards, you can remove them pretty easily. We can only get them in the fall, and we eat them all the time.

The pomegranate is a player in many myths, most notably the Persephone story, and it's also been speculated that it was the pomegranate that Satan used to tempt Eve. It is also known as a "love-apple".

I love pomegranates.

Kim, all those stages of the pomegranate would make a great new food dish graphic, with the graphic changing every time someone eats a piece.

mmm... pomgranates... the weather here is so freaky we didn't get a decent crop this year. maybe some will come around December if we get a decent enough frost. Grenadines sound soooooo good right about now.
