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 :-)

The suspense is over!!! Seashell Cottage is all ready! with an added bonus....The Ship Inn

Well today I got the eagerly awaited pictures of Seashell Cottage I have been checking my inbox all day and they have just popped up! I just love it! Julie has as always worked her magic and come up with the most adorable cottage and I am just thrilled! The planning this one has I'm sure added a few more grey hairs but it was worth it. I love how as the emails fly back and forth with Julie we exchange thoughts and ideas and then she turns the dreams into reality, she really is just so talented. I just love the little seats in the porch, that was one of her ideas and its so pretty! The half glass door will allow for some nice stained glass and the bathroom we had so many dilemmas over looks like it was always meant to be just like that!

I also had an idea for a shop front that will sit in the back of the village square. Theres no room for a whole house as I wouldn't be able to access it. The plan was to make it into a pub with a bay window so I can add a light to give it some life and this has turned out fab! I had to look twice at the picture as at first glance you don't even notice its not a whole house!!

I am a very happy bunny now to start planning the interior :-)


  1. That is a lovely cottage and the pub front is a great idea. Looking forward to seeing it all furnished :).

  2. Great Blog Paula, and at last I can comment! Oh such fun to look at your and your mums houses - sigh - makes me want to come play.

  4. I so love Seashell Cottage! It's absolutely beautiful and will be even more beautiful once you start on the interior. The pub front is a brilliant idea, and looks perfect for the job!
