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 :-)

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!
