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 :-)

New items in Wishes bridal shop

Been adding a few new items to the bridal shop recently and now its nice and full thought I would post some updated pictures. The 1st new thing was the chaise bought of Ebay which I was really pleased with and last week got a lovely litle matching stool from Ebay from a different seller which i have put in the dressing room! so pleased as they match perfectly what a lucky spot that was!

The dress was also from Ebay think my slight anul-ness kicked in a bit here as the 1st one I got was stitched lopsided and I knew everytime I looked at it, it would bug the crap out of me so returned it and they sent another which sadly was worse! really couldn't face sending it back again so spent a couple of hours last week when Scarlett was over redoing it. Redid the bodice as it was a bit uneven, the front of the hem was uneven so re-sewed that, moved the bow on the back over slightly so it was in the centre and redid the lace on the back of the train and finally added a bit of lace to the waistband to tidy the middle up. It was a lot of work and such a shame as the actual dress itself which is modelled on Kate Middletons was really quite lovely had it had just a little bit more attention to detail before sending it would have been perfect, but now at least I do enjoy looking at it so it was still worth the purchase maybe I was just unlucky.

Got the little shelves last weekend just needs a few more items on the top shelf and maybe one more pretty dress on the rail but its such a lovely girly shop I really do love it and to think I almost didn't bother doing it as I wasn't convinced now I'm so glad I did :-)


  1. Wow, that is so beautiful Paula, a real work of art, so gorgeous and girly!

  2. Oh, Paula ... The shop is so beautiful! You were very careful when choosing the wedding dress, because it is beautiful. The display case with accessories is wonderful!

  3. The chaise and stool are beautiful! And the dress is amazing after your hard work. It`s a wonderful shop Julia!
