Grist Mill, Weston , Vermont beyond postcard from the past

I am sure if you have followed my blog by now, you know how much I love to visit offbeat places, and when it comes to offbeat places, Vermont immediately comes to my mind. No matter how many times I visited yet to wanderlust. I must tell you visiting Vermont in the fall has its charm. The little rustic towns accentuate fall aesthetics and beauty, not just for your eyes but also for your soul. I often wonder and find it intriguing how these places keep their beauty and tranquility so virgin and undulated in the time of advancement of science and technology where the rest of the world is on the go.  Here I was in a little piece of heaven called Weston. A little town was not so little when it came to its charm and beauty.

This lovely little place that adds aura and allure is called Grist Mill, built in 1780 and originally built as a lumber mill. Engulfed in the bank of West River, the mill is a sight to behold with the serene surroundings and tranquility of trees, a waterfall, and a tiny little creek. If you love to take photographs or just spend some quaint time in the serenity and relax or wander around with the history of early American technology, this is the best place for you. 


  1. Looks like a beautiful, love your outfit 💕

  2. Wow charming houses and peaceful countryside, just
    the trip to recharge your batteries..

My favorite pieces of Assamese Traditional jewelry

My grandmother's thuria, age-old and heirloom jewelry, of course, not part-able         A piece of jewelry echoes a region's rich heritage, aesthetics and sensibilities and Assamese jewelry does not differ from that. A piece of jewelry not just enhances the wearer's beauty but identity as well.       A land of flamboyant rivers engulfed in exotic flora and fauna, birds, musical instruments Assamese jewelry is highly inspired by that. Sharing a few assamese pieces of jewelry from my personal collection.       An Assamese bride's dress up is incomplete without Assamese jewelry. Traditionally Assamese jewelry is purely handmade. The main frame is made out with 24-carat gold and lac is used as a filling material. Stones are studded on the top.  The creatively and meticulously studded stone craftsmanship resembles with pomegranate seeds. The color and texture of the stone are opulent and lurid just like pomegranate. Nowadays imitation Assamese jewelry are als

Keeping it simple-random things about me

Hello my dear readers, how are you all doing? Summer vacation has just started here on the east coast. My kids are having a gala time. I can't tell you how time is flying. My time is all occupied by them. Taking to them, playing with them, take them to the library, reading stories and most importantly cooking their favorite food. Hence thought, I'll keep it simple and straightforward. It has been more than a year now, and I have shared so many things about my life, travel, fashion, etc. Today I'll share a few random thoughts about me. 1. My favorite color - Navy blue, peach and off-white. Not that I don't wear any other color, but those colors are readily available in my wardrobe. 2. My favorite outfit - In western I love to wear a crisp white top and blue jeans. I know very casual. In Indian, I love sarees. Mostly, I love handwoven and handwork ones. I love salwar kurta too. You will find more solid colors then prints or patterns in my wardrobe. 3. Am I fitnes

Bartaco, West Hartford , Connecticut review

It was a usual February day, the chill felt like tucking in the furry comforter and stay cozy at home. But, the matter of the fact was that it was my birthday  and my family wanted me to take out for dinner. I was reluctant and wanted to stay at home. My little one was after me and I couldn't say no. I had no clue where we were heading for dinner and then here we were at the Bartaco. Vivacious Bartaco instantly took away my winter sluggishness. With a gracious greeting, modern contemporary laid back sitting and a bit of hustle and bustle made me alive in the winter freezing February.

As a sober, I chose housemade pomegranate lemonade and hubby got grapefruit ginger juice. I never had pomegranate lemonade before, I must say it was one of the coolest and refreshing lemonade I have ever had. The tint of lemonade not just took the look but
