Simple Pleasures and Extravagant Finds

The Sign says "Simple Pleasures and Extravagant Finds" It's the tag line of a new store opening in Middleton, MA.  And the sign says it all!  New England Fine Living has something for every taste, budget and style!

                                                                     Come on in and shop!

Linda Smith, proprietress and Divine Diva of Design has brought together an eclectic mix of vendors and consignees.  She showcases their wares in stylish vignettes all over the store!

The "Glitz and Glamour" room features new and "pre-loved" clothes - cocktail dresses, purses, shoes and tops.

Need some jewelery to accent the outfit?  Vintage and handmade baubles abound!  Lotions? Potions?  Full Circle Day Spa showcases a nice assortment of pampering treats for the skin!

Artwork?  Custom framed pictures? Furniture?  Lighting? Rugs?  It's in there!

The "Dining Room", "Gold Room", "Rustic Room" and an adorably colorful room full of ceramics and candles are artfully set up.  Their  items are waiting to be taken home and treasured.

 Did I mention that I'm one of the merry band of vendors?  That's me up top in red!  I'm showing an array of custom framed botanical prints, some accessories, lighting,  furniture and, for the first time, some of my photography! 

So, for all of my readers in and around the northshore of Boston - stop in for a real treat!  New items arrive daily and every time you walk through the store, new surprises await!  Please visit the website for a list of vendors and upcoming events!

"A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams." ...and really great accessories! (Unknown quote with my two cents added in!)


  1. Rosanne, I'm with you... even love & dreams are lovelier with a few really great accessories! The shop looks exceptional, in its concept, design and contents... I can't wait to check it out. That's exciting that you are showing your photography in addition to your other goodies. Much success with this venture.

  2. Thank you! Its a great collaboration of people and Linda has pulled it all together so beautifully! About selling my photography - more scary than exciting!! But we'll see what happens!


I welcome any and all comments!
