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 :-)

Finished the kitchen in Lavender cottage

Decided yesterday it was time to tackle the dresser for Lavender cottage as its been bugging me! I got it off Ebay a few weeks back for £1.99 as it was coming with the bed I ordered for Seaview so there was no extra postage to pay and it was the exact perfect measurements to fit in the small gap I had for it. I have been undecided whether or nor it was too dark and go for a lightwood one so haven't done anything with it but decided I would have a bash at it. I think it actually looks ok now its in place and Rose is no spring chicken she wouldn't have all new furniture so it wouldn't be all perfectly matched and this dresser was her great Aunt Matildas so it would be very insensative of me to get rid of it!!

 Doing the dresser made me get on with the rest of the kitchen! I was going for quite a different feel to Seaview as thats supposed to be quite young and girly and originally my plan had been to put the green DHE kitchen units I had (not now sold on Ebay lol)   as I was going to make the lounge the kitchen and vice versa but when it came it had the fireplace fitted and the units wouldn't fit and the scullery door really should lead to the kitchen so it seemed right that way round. Its such a small room and with 2 doors and a fireplace it was impossible to get any kitchen units to fit so just went with a small sink and a range still amazed at how much has actually gone in there lol it has everything a kitchen would need just hope it doesn't look too dated as it didn't really want it to be, wanted it to look more traditional than old fashioned hope I've achieved that. I added the curtain on the sink to match the blind and some teatowels on the stove and of course Fisherman Bob has cornish pasty for his supper! I love the pic without the flash it looks like a cosy winters night!


  1. The kitchen looks great! You are doing a wonderful job!

  2. Thank you so much! I said it was finished but already planning to change it lol needs a cupboard above the sink!

  3. It looks like an old cottage, but where someone from this time period (is it called that) lives. It can be seen in the trash can, and other decorations and accessories. You have done a great job.
