Welcome to Quayside my town by the seaside!
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 :-)

Onto the bedroom! with a dash of fairy dust!
I then decided to do the same with a small mahogany table I had for use as a bedside table. This wasn't so easy!!! The mahogany stain kept bleeding through turning the cream paint pink! After 3 coats it obviously wans't goint to stop so had to come up with something this hide it. I added a little band of paper where it was still showing and a little brass handle to emulate a drawer. The end result turned out ok thank goodness.
Next was the wardrobe. Its a strange colour as its not really cream its more of an oatmeal. I have 3 different wardrobes and none of them seem quite right in this room, but I don't really want to buy another one at the moment so I did what I could with this one. I just rubbed it down a little and added some paper to match it in a bit better. Its not the best but for now its not too bad.
The new shelves were an Ebay find, they are Reutter bakers shelves. I just thought with the black and wicker they would make a nice addition to the room. They do look nice in place and its always to have somewhere to add little things as you come across them!
Love the overall effect of the room a little shabby but def chic! As you can tell I just love flower fairies and here are various little touches of them throughout the room. I love the Reutter plate rack, the readable Dateman book, the wall plate, the pictures on the wall (made from keyrings that were 50p in a charity shop!) and the cushion, even a teeny tiny Tink. We all need a little pixie dust in our lives!!
I love pictures with no flash and the light on it just makes it look sooo cosy!
Had to just put one 'through the window' picture. It always makes me feel like a sneaky peak in to someones house. You never know what goes on when we aren't around!
