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 :-)

A basket of toadstools for Winnie

I was thinking of more things to add to the witches garden and thought about a nice basket of toadstools. I was going to buy a very lovely one but yesterday I found some air drying clay and thought I would try making a few as I already had a suitable basket.  I painted them today and put a dab of glue on the ends and dipped them in some 'dirt' scatter and lay them on a bed of reindeer moss. I am really happy with it!

The bigger ones will be planted in Winnies garden when its a little more ready!


  1. Hi Paula, great job on the toadstools, I love them!! I made some for my fairy Cottage, they're fun to make. I love your basket too.
    Wish you a lovely weekend ahead.

  2. These are fantastic Paula! Wonderful hen house too!

  3. Absolutely adore those toadstools, you're very clever!
