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 :-)

Hen house and hat stands!

I was looking at little wooden hen houses on Ebay for Winnies chickens but they were quite dear so decided I would have a go at making one myself! I used a couple of bits of wood, lots of lolly sticks, some net from a washing tablet bag (stained a bit with tea) and a coat of oak varnish. I finished it off with a bit of 'grass' carpet dirtied up a bit on the roof and added some straw. I think they look very happy in their new home!!

I have bought a few of KATS fab witches hats for my shop lately and really needed a couple of extra hat stands. They are so expensive on Ebay almost £4 with postage and I seriously begrudged paying that when I know they are only 50p in the DH shop but I can't get there for a another couple of weeks and am too impatient lol! Remembered I had some dark blue glittery fimo and thought I could make some witchy style hat stands and I am so pleased how they turned out and thats a few pounds to spend on something else now!!!
