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 :-)

Fishing supplies shop needs a new owner!

Today I have shockingly spent pretty much the whole day up in 'Dollyland' making a little fishing supplies shop. It was a Christmas pressie from my better half and although its a bit small in scale its very cute and he thought it would go well in the village so seemed a shame not to make use of it.

It was already painted in a nice blue colour that would have been the easy part! for a start the instructions were all in Chinese and every little piece needed making up! even things like the ships wheel and lifebuoy clock were all separate parts and I very almost lost the will to carry on with it as it was so damn fiddly but I persevered and the overall result is not too bad. Its def on the small side so will sit at the back of the village green as if its in the distance. I renamed it after the name of the boat in one of the pictures Bethany and I made and its run by the same man Denzil Watkins although I don't own him just yet I am waiting for the right doll to come along!

Picture 3 is how it was supposed to look but I made a few adjustments as in I didn't make the chest you have no idea how many bits that was!!!


  1. It looks great and did well getting it all done in just one day. Maybe you will get round to doing the chest sometime in the future.

  2. Oh I really like that Paula! Tut at you with the chest though, bet you can't resist making it at the end. Love all the bits in the fishing shop, it looks great fun

  3. So cute this kit, Paula! I really enjoyed it!
