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 :-)

Too many ideas and lovely shabby chic things.

Not much min'ing to report so far this week as I have a head full of ideas for my new house and can't seem to get inspired with anything else at the mo! Julie is hard at work on Seashell Cottage plus another little project which I will keep as a surprise for now! Chatting with Julie we have decided to go with whitewashed floorboards for a different look to my other cottages as I really fancy doing this one in a proper shabby chic style rather than the more girlie stuff I did in Seaview. So at the moment I am thinking of moving Amelia and her stuff into Seashell and Angela into Seaview! The property world in Quayside is a very fast paced one!

Got lots of ideas for distressed looking furniture and been trawling all the usual suspects for ideas. Ebay has not much and what it does have is expensive and could easily be achieved with a little thought. Etsy has lots more but some of the prices make your eyes water. Came across a lovely website today which had some really pretty shabby chic items for what I felt were really good prices so I ordered a couple of things The lady who runs it is really lovely so I recommend anyone to stop by and have a little look I am sure you might be tempted :-)  Mollysue Miniatures
