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 :-)

Filling up the china shop, flowers and glowing pumpkins!

I had some free time today so decided I would have a little play in Quayside while the house was quiet! Everyone doing there own thing so snuck away while no one was looking lol! I had loads of bits of china that didn't have a home so I decided to have a change around in Wishes and Dishes in the downstairs china shop.

I had placed a long counter across the back with the till on but figured if I turned that sideways I could add another shelf unit above it and fill it with much more stock!

I filled the shelves with all the china I could find so now there is certainly plenty of stock!! More bunting of course! it gets everywhere lol I love the stuff and make in in every colour to match my houses!!

 I even had some little oyster dishes perfect for some lovely fresh seaside oysters caught by Fisherman Bob! Oops the pink tea pot is a bit tipsy! I hate that when you take a photo and don't notice lol!!

 I made a little table just big enough for the till and light to replace it which is just fine.

I also put all the lovely flowers that I bought from Julie on the shelves outside the flower shop. They look wonderful! what a lovely display and lots of bouquets and of course the Easter window!

 Lastly I had seen some lovely light up pumpkins on Ebay but they were quite expensive so I resisted temptation. I remembered some cheap plastic ones that I had got with some baskets a little while ago from Ebay that I had just chucked to one side as they weren't that great! But as they were hollow I had an idea to cut the top off and add a light and make my own light up one for the witches house! It looks just fab its so bright and is a perfect outdoor light for Broomstick Cottage!
