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 :-)

Making a start on a garden for the Angelas new cottage.

Today I started making a garden ready for when Angleas new cottage arrives. It will sit in the corner next to Captains Rest so I have a nice decent size space to play with. Thanks to the lovely Andy at my OH's work who cut me a piece of MDF today which was such a help so I could get started on it straight away. I decided to have a go at making a little bird table after looking at some on Ebay thought it couldn't be that difficult so had a go!  also made a little net bird feeder just to finish it off and its turned out not bad actually so I am pretty pleased and saved myself a few pounds which is always good! I also made a raised decking area which needs sanding a bit after the varnish drys so its not so glossy looking and will add some fencing around it. I have been saving egg boxes to make a flagstone path and I have an idea for some kind of rockery around the fishpond so will attempt to have a go at that will have to think of a plan B if it doesn't work! Have ordered some railway grass as I wanted something a bit more realistic than the grass carpet that you can buy it was only £2.20 so fingers crossed it looks the part!


  1. The garden is really cute. What a clever thing you are, the birdtable is really good, looks very realistic. Greenhouse looks very at home there as well, decking area looks great too. Well done Paula

  2. Looks great already and the bird table is fab. Will be interested in how you get on with the railway grass as I fancy having a go with that too.
