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 :-)

Welcome to Upper Quayside!

My lovely little shops arrived on Friday afternoon! Typical the only day I was off out to get my hair cut so had to just take the parcel from the postie stick it in Dollyland and leave it til I got home!!

Unpacked it all when I got back so find they had all arrived safely plus the extra little things like the wonderful flowers that I had also bought from Julie. I have been very busy the past few days setting up the shops and deciding which was the best order to have them in. I now have a really sore neck from moving them around 20 times before I decided! They look amazing! It was just a spark of an idea to make a space for a few more cottages and even I never imagined just how good they would look! Julie really has to take all the credit as she really has the most amazing way of turning dreams into reality!!

I decided to put the pink one which is called Sweet Pea Cottage on the end as its the very slightly smallest of the 3. I have been busy making lots of lovely things to fill it with so was just a case of fitting the chandelier which I love!! and popping everything else in. Its so pretty and feminine I love it! Bethany of course made all my signs and she decided on the name for this one.

Next is Crabpot Cottage which is a little farm/supplies shop. I have just used a few things I already had to hand and I made the white shelf unit this afternoon. It needs a bit more stock but at least the residents of Quayside now have somewhere to do a little shopping.

I could also just about fit the Harbour Hut on the end of the shelf so that gives me Ocean View a whole extra shop to fill! At the moment I am not sure what to do with it so its just up for lease til a new owner comes along!


  1. The shops are all very beautiful.

  2. Oh I love them! I'm definitely calling about the lease for sale! Especially love the shabby boutique, absolutely gorgeous!

  3. The one for lease, how about beach Hire, like wet suits etc, a hairdresser/barbers, pet shop, OR... a charity shop? and you could put homeless bits & bobs in there. Send the details of your sign writer as I need one made please!

  4. Does Quatside have a pub? It could be a pub.

  5. They are fantastic but my favourite is definately the Shabby Chic Boutique, just gorgeous :).
