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 :-)

Quayside Hairdressers

Well after thinking all weekend what to turn the top floor of the new Lavender cottage into I have decided to make it a hairdressers!

Been doing lots of research online although so now I have a few ideas and made a start last night. Found a fab lime green swivel chair on Ebay from the same lovely seller I got the black one from so the colour scheme has been planned around that and will be black, white and lime green!

Made a reception desk last night and have just started on the mirror wall unit and will paint that later. Ordered a lime green face cloth from Ebay that will be cut up into towels and the one thing I couldn't find was a trolley the cheapest and only one being a delph one at £30 then had a thought about the little butchers trolley on casters thats in Seaview and decided although its cute I will adapt that then I will have room for a nice little wicker unit where it was!

Also made a breakfast bar for the icecream parlour and painted a couple of chairs I had! yet more odd shaped bits of delprado ply coming into use think thats been one of my best Ebay buys ever it comes in so handy!!! not totally convinced about the chairs think I would rather have chrome bar stools maybe but for now they are ok!


  1. I can already see that it will be a great hairdresser.
    Looking forward to see more.

  2. A hairdressers is a great idea and I love the colour scheme you picked, very trendy.

  3. Thanks both of you the colour was all down to a chair I bought on Ebay lol that was the inspiration for the whole project and I am having a great time with it!!!
