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 :-)

Christmas is coming to Quayside!!

Now Halloween is all done and dusted decided to turn my attention from witches and potions to Christmas and presents! Packed all the village green summer items safely away til next year and made a start on my Christmas scene. Of course there is Santa and Mrs Claus to hand out presents to the village children so I decorated his sleigh with some tinsel made him some nice cushions and lined the insisde with some red felt to make it a bit cosier. Mrs Claus has made sure theres a flask of cocoa and a cosy rug for when it gets a bit chilly!

I made the tables for the fete part as I wanted 3 the same size and it was easier to make them the right size than try and buy them! There will be a needlework stall with knitting and cushions a Christmas decorations stall and the all important food. Set up a couple today just to see if there was enough stock notice the super cute knitted things from my good friend Deb love the little jumper and woolly hat she sometimes sells on Ebay if you want to get some the same! The tables need decorated and I need to make some Christmas bunting and may even have a go at some fimo food but have also bought some to be on the safe side! Put up a couple of sets of lights just to see what would go where and if there was enough its def got me feeling all Christmassy!!!


  1. Oooh i love it! Makes me feel all christmassy. Love the stall and all the chrimbo lights, it's really really pretty!

  2. Oh forgot to say i love Mr & Mrs Claus, they are super fun and look perfect in the village along with their reindeer and sleigh
