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 babies and buying pretty little Easter bunnies!

I am always looking at the wonderful handmade babies on Ebay but they always go for such a lot of money sometimes as much as I pay for a whole house! so when I was in Hobbycraft at the weekend I decided to pick up some flesh coloured Fimo and have a bash at making one. Figured if it was a complete disaster it was only £2.19 wasted!

Well its taken me all night I got seriously fussy with it lol the 1st attempt ended up scrunched up in a ball after about 3 hours work on it cos it just wasn't right (it reminded me of a cross between an alien and Gollum!!) I could of cried ha ha but decided not to give up and to have another go at it and it didn't take me nearly as long the 2nd time and he turned out much better than the 1st one. I have to say baking a baby in the oven was just a little unverving to say the least! The dummy is a Sylvanian one I had in the baby shop I gave up trying to make one that looked ok!

I went shopping in the nursery shop and found a little cape and pants set that were knitted by my lovely friend DEB and they were just perfect for him. He looks all cosy in his pram and although hes prob not the most beautiful baby in the world hes all mine and I love him :-)

 Thought I would show you a few little Easter items I bought from Ebay recently as they really are fab! I got a few things to decorate the flower shop window and loved them so much I asked the seller if she would make me a bunny for my dresser and a little teapot. I wasn't expecting the little bunny attached and I adore it! They really are such lovely things. The seller is so nice she asked me for some ideas of what to make as and has taken on board every suggestion I made and has made them all so really hope you take a look at her items and maybe buy something I know you will love it too. I so want the ruby slippers lol!!!


  1. Is a very cute baby! Looks lovely all snuggled up in the pram. Love the easter bunnies as well!
