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 :-)

2nd post today been very busy in Dollyland!

Thought I would share another post with you of my progress today as school half term has now started and my good friend Karen (hello Karen :-) I know she reads this!!) is coming on Sunday so I won't be on so much as we will be out and about enjoying the time off!

Toady I decided to tackle the kitchen unit. Again it was a nice piece and I was a bit dubious to change it but it needed to be white to fit in with the other items. Did the usual painting and sanding for the distressed look then added all the little extras that bring a piece of furniture to life. The little baskets are from Cute and Crafties made my the lovely Rose and are just the right size to fit underneath. There are some nice cupcakes and of course a pink mixer and coffee machine, thank you Karen ( A different Karen!) for the coffee machine that was once white! The canisters were covered in paper to make them a little more interesting. I think the whole thing matches in really nicely with the sink now. My next dilemma is the fridge! I think its a little too bright and may need a spray job to tone it down a bit!

I have also added a new table and chairs, a bit of a bargain from Ebay, and I am now on the lookout for some nice things to dress the table with!

Here are a few updated pictures of the whole house now its come along a bit further. Hope you see the wonderful Seashell cottage sign by Julie Lawton. I love this house it has such a lovely feel to it. I am sure Dolls Houses are like real houses you know when one is right as soon as you step inside. I always knew this one was right from the moment I saw it! I hope you all love it too! :-)


  1. That's very pretty, the baskets are just right for it, can't believe how far it's come along already, it's all "so right" and looks absolutely stunning, you've done such a lot of it yourself with all your painting etc., and it's absolutely perfect.

  2. loving it!!! so pretty and inviting...where di you get the coffee maker from?
