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 :-)

New bathroom for Seashell cottage

The new bathroom for Seashell Cottage arrived with the dresser on Saturday although not without drama! I originally had thought about getting a nice Reutter one but not sure once they are in place with all the right accesories it would look wildly different enough to justify such a high price tag and I saw this one on Ebay and just really liked the blue pattern of it. The suite itself is really nice considering it was only £7.99 but the taps were glued on all wrong so it took me ages to warm up the glue get them and the ton of glue off and re-do them. Then I ended up chipping it where the holes for the taps were, I was not happy grrr but a dab of superglue and you really can't see it but now at least the taps are straight it would have bugged me no end if I hadn't sorted lol. The pattern is squint round bottom of the toilet but you can't see that so its fine. Such a shame as it really is a nice suite and if it had been made with a little more attention to detail it would have been worth more than the price tag but for what it cost it really does look quite nice.

I gave the white shelf unit the shabby chic treatment just take its newness away and rubbed off the black paint from the handles, added some pretty paper and a few items but its looking a little empty!


  1. A really lovely and elegant bathroom.

  2. Gorgeous bathroom Paula, it all looks perfect. I adore your little bathroom shelf as well with all the bits on it, absolutely gorgeous!
