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 :-)

Happy New year and lots of Christmas mini'ing

Hope you all had a great Christmas and new Year! ours was mad busy with a house of 9 for 2 weeks but we really had the best Christmas ever!! we had a wonderful time and I was very sad yesterday to see everyone go especially my Mum I really do miss her!

Got a few DH bits for Christmas a lovely doll which you know about lol and a fab little rabbit and Bethany made me a sign for the spare room and a picture for the cafe which was was one off my favourite pressies!! I could just imagine her upstairs arranging all my villagers for the photo lol! Had lots of mini time with my Mum which was fab we had a great time giving the cafe refurb and making lots of things also gave me lots of ideas for future projects. Was sad to pack the Christmas fayre away I had great fun making that its a bit early to make a summer scene so just decided to make a snowy one for now! We had a change round of the houses in the corner they look much better now and I have nice area inbetween to make a garden. Captains Rest looks great with the boards up and a bit of Ivy added. I do have a really bad itch for a new cottage though I find Crabpot a bit small compared to all my others and am really debating on getting a lovely new cottage to go in that space!!

Mum and I escaped the chaos and sneaked off upstairs most days for a little play! I decided to give the cafe a refurb as it was a bit boring. The dresser was in a mixed lot of Sylvanian stuff and its drawers were missing so I made some draw fronts and painted it blue to look a bit more seasidey and then went with the red check theme to match in with the chairs. We also made the jars of jam, bunting, menus and pictures. I am really pleased how its turned out and it didn't cost me a penny apart form printer ink for all the signs and papers


  1. Everything is so beautiful! I loved every detail!
    Happy New Year!
