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 :-)

Chippie eating area and my beautiful new doll

I love my little chippie but I thought the village square looked a little dark so I made a little outside seating area. I used a piece of vinyl floor covering in a pale wood colour and added a lolly stick fence painted white.

The new street lamp was another bargain from Ebay and has 3 bulbs so that helped to brighten it up too. I thought it looked a little more modern day than the old fashioned one I had there before, thats now outside the Christmas house!

  A few bits of reindeer moss, some flowers and some little shells just finish it off.

I think its def made the area look a little more interesting!

I still love Ernie the tramp on his favourite bench! He got lucky today with some left over chinese!!

My lovely new doll from Ebay arrived today and shes fab!! I love her. Shes already settled into her new home and looks perfect in there with her little dog Beans (don't ask!!). I will make her a pink pinny as the red one didn't really match but it won't go to waste as it will match my cafe! I did ask the lady who sold her what her name was and it was Muriel but I wasn't sure if that was right for my house (she was from a 40's themed house) So I decided to keep with the M and her name is Madeline, Maddie for short! Sorry lots of pics of her I got excited and kept taking them ha ha! I am so pleased with her and so happy I waited for the perfect doll to come along!


  1. Oh I love Maddie, she looks very much at home there. She's got a lovely face, I love her!

    The chippy seating is great, nothing like sitting outside eating fish and chips, and good to see Ernie's still around, am sure he'll be getting a few fish suppers if he keeps a look out.

  2. Ernie on the bench is fantastic!
    I like the little dog with Maddie.
    Bye Faby

  4. Your attention to detail is just amazing, you think of everything, it all looks so real and lived in!
