Tungelsta Day

Art & Handicraft


Elfie Larsson



This past Saturday saw the annual Tungelsta Day. I took a stroll with my camera, and one of the places I checked out was Handlaget that operates from the old station house. There is an ongoing art exhibition there. The artist is Elfie Larsson. She works with water colors. I had a chat with the artist and with her husband Rolf who turned out to be a keen photographer. If you would like to have a better look at the old station house check out this link. And for a zoomed out version I recommend clicking here.

I have to stay away from these events as I tend to buy a bunch of stuff I don't really need...

But I love them, and would love to stroll about and peruse all the items for sale...especially the work of this water color artist!

I notice that a lot of people are wearing somewhat heavy jackets. Is it that cold already?

How colorful. It would be delightful to poke around there. And the watercolorist does beautiful work. I love your portrait of her, Steffe.

very nice artist and art work. You could spend all day going through all of the things for sale. I am like Jacob, I would buy too much stuff!

j'aime la première photo, la brocante.

I wonder what it is about old station houses that has them attracting all sorts of events. Happens everywhere.

The area in front of that building was in the shade. If you look at the Martial Arts photos you can see that we still have days with summer temperatures.

The trick, Jacob, and one that I always follow is not to bring any money to events like this one!

It's probably the location Per. The building was designed by the famous architect Ferdinand Boberg who was responsible for al the station houses along the Nynäsbanan railway line. The former station master still lives on the second floor.

I liked this post very much.
I liked the lady and her watercolors, and the many aspects of the old station that you give us.
The last-snow photo is magnificent!

Weather a bit cooler? First photo is very good, I'd like to browse all those stalls...
I like the works of the watercolorist lady and the way you portrayed her.
