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 :-)

Matching curtains for Seashells bedroom

Just a little job in Quayside today as I have been listing loads of things on Ebay to hopefully raise some pennies to spend on Dolls house things! So being a bit thrifty I figured I could make some curtains for Seashell Cottage without spending any money! I used the left over white mat that was in the pack from Poundland and the spare trims from the make up bag. a wooden skewer and a couple of beads. Finished off with a bit of lace and cord and I think they do the job perfectly and they didn't cost a penny! A free project is always good!


  1. You made a lovely job of these! You'd never know they were free :D

  2. I have just found your lovely blog and am now a follower. Your curtains are beautiful.
    Hugs Maria
