Welcome to Quayside my town by the seaside!


Thank you for visiting my blog and thanks even more if you decide to follow :-) I really do enjoying doing it and love to share my projects with you all! In the village at last count I had 18 houses, 14 little roombox size shops, 3 half houses, and 1 half church (half being just a front!) there's also 1 quarter of a house (just half of a front lol) 2 market stalls, 3 market carts and beach huts on the beach although theres always seems to be room for just one more!

I also have a my 1st house a traditional Victorian manor which is very special as it was bought with money left to me by my beloved Nan. There's also my witches house and a witches shop. I also have a lovely Honeychurch house which is my Christmas shop and house and my latest venture a little vintage cottage. But the bulk of my property empire is Quayside, my little Cornish seaside village full of lovely individual cottages and all its wonderful residents. This has become a real labour of love and has turned me from a Dolls house fan into a complete and utter addict! The links below will take you to each of my houses and I especially hope you enjoy your visit to Quayside :-)

The almost perfect sofa for Lavender cottage and not bad fridge for Seaview!

The new sofa and chair arrived for Lavender cottage this morning the lady at Bluebell minitures kindly swapped them for me when the other one didn't look right and when the parcel came today I was so excited it was much better and looked just right, til I noticed a big fat crease all across the back. Gutted! It will show up so much cos of the way it will be placed in the room so unfortuately although I was hoping not to I think it may have to go back! I know deep down it will drive me nuts everytime I look at it what a shame I will get the right sofa eventually!

On the upside the fridge finally dried so I put it in place this afternoon and it looks not bad really quite pleased with it! not bad for £3.99 and a bit of paint! almost worth all the grief it caused me ha ha I will be out and about next week with Mum and Dad so hopefully will find some stickers for the SMEG part to finish it off but it looks like its supposed to so thats a start! Also got a tiny bunny in the post today from Ebay I have bought a couple as I used to collect them when I was younger and thought they would go nicely in SeaView. Was a beautiful day today just right for a cool drink and a good book in the garden so translated that into my mini world!
