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 :-)

Babs Boutique has moved premises

Been thinking and staring at my village a bit today making plans for the cottage and the new village pub, although not totally convinced it will still be a pub at the mo not convinced it doesn't look 'too nice' to be smelly pub so am thinking it might be a nice chic seaside B & B but will wait til it arrives and see how it looks in place and its future will I'm sure be obvious to me then!

I moved the Harbour Hut into the village square which then gave me a garden area and that led to thinking it could be n nice outside seating area for the iceacream parlour if I moved it back into Barnacle cottage. This means I could then move Babs Boutique into Sweet Pea cottage which totally made sense as theres more room to spread the stuff out a little and it sits so much better is this cottage with the hairdressers upstairs, plus the window is perfect for a nice display can't see how I didn't think of it before!! I am still loving the bead curtain its one one my most fav Ebay purchases ever and matches the new decor perfectly! This is why I love my village so much its evolving all the time!!!

Hope you like the new look Boutique :-) just waiting on my wonderful signwriter to make me some graphics for the walls etc as we have sadly run of of ink at the mo!


  1. Oh yes, definitely a good move! Never tire of looking at Quayside, always so much to see, you keep seeing different things every time you look, the village is certainly buzzing!

  2. I love that bead curtain too and am going to try making one with the leftover beads from a beading course I did a couple of years ago ;).
