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 :-)

Sit outside with your icecream and enjoy the sunshine!

I had a piece of mdf with some lolly stick fence around it that was being used as the village green but as I have now filled the space with the Harbour Hut and the flower shop (although I have another cunning plan for there!) I no longer had a home for it and it seemed a shame not to make use of it. I thought I would make an outside seating area for the icecream parlour so the customers can sit in the sunshine with their lovely icecream sundaes! I already had a couple of tables and bought a couple of matching chairs to go with them. I made some seatpads and added some tableclothes. The flooring was a vinyl floor tile scored out in 1cm sections to look like decking which worked out ok and saved me having to buy some wooden flooring! It needs more food on the tables but for now its ok. Not sure about the trees need to find a way of making them look a bit more realistic. Its nice to recycle something so its not wasted :-) xx


  1. Great idea and wonderful results. Makes me think of sunlight and warmth.

  2. Awww that's very summery, love your tablecloths and cushions, oh and the signs, and ....... well everything!
