New in the kitchen

June 10, 2012

It’s getting more and more difficult to find AMAZING stuff on Tidan’s weekly flea market. However, have rarely managed to return home emptyhanded. This salad bowl is the latest arrival in the kitchen. Love it!

Vallby Sörgården

Picture of Flistad in Vallby Sörgården

When Kristina and I walked past the preserved Vallby Sörgården (just on the other side of the train line), we were lucky to meet a woman who gave us a private tour through the house tha is otherwise closed at this time of the year. In one of the rooms, I found this old photograph of Flistad on the wall. The wallpapers in the house, by the way, are one of the most interesting details. She showed us a book with samples of all the different original wallpapers used in the house.

Tingsholm in Moholm: Cafe, Guesthouse, Boutique

December 5, 2010

In the old tingshuset (house of justice) in Moholm, approx. 7 km from Snaerva, opened a new business with cafe, and boutique. Can be booked for groups and they apparently even have guest rooms. Check their website for opening times.

Cakes and ambiente are amazing, absolutely worth a visit!

The only drawback is the immediate surroundings. Moholm is a somewhat sad and bleak community. And the house is next to the stambanan railways and a large bridge. It all looks a bit surreal …

Tidan in the eye of Google

August 19, 2010

Go to Google Maps, search for ‘Tidan’, place Streetview onto Skövdevägen, and you can drive along all Tidan sights in sunny springtime. Apart from a perfect pic of the Konditoriet and my favourite villa (opposite the supermarket), you can even see the sky above you. Genius.

Immer noch keine Mikrowelle und keine Spülmaschine, aber neue Farbe: die Küche in Snärva.

Tidan Photo Website

April 17, 2010

Kaum zu glauben, Tidan hat einen (neuen) Fan: Arnold Karlén hat auf seiner Photoblogseite ca. 100 Fotos direkt aus dem Tidan (Arbeits-) Alltag mit vielen bekannten Gesichtern. Die Konditorinnen beim Teig walzen, Tidan’s Autowerkstatt, Klempner, mechanische Werkstätten, Schaltzentrale im Silo, Antikvariat, das Büro im Fahrradgeschäft … ausserdem einige interessante Hintergrundinformationen (in Schwedisch).
