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 :-)

Playing with handbags and having a general fiddle about!

I don't have much to do in Dollyland at the mo and was bored today as the weather was miserable so  decided to just sit and have a stare and see if I could get inspired to make something! Decided eventually that I could do something with the vintage clothing shop as it was not showing off its stock to its best ability! I just love the bags and they were hidden at the back so decided to have a change around!

I made a little changing room in the corner behind the till as people def needed somewhere to try things on!

I rearranged the handbag display and added my 2 favourite pairs of shoes. The brown ones were on a doll from a boot sale and the blue ones were from America but they were perfect so I had to have them!

I made a front hanging display area for the clothes rather than the rail that was there before. I can fit loads more onto it now and it shows it all off much better.

I filled the counter with a bit more stock and made a little shelf above the dressing table for a few pairs of shoes.

It really doesn't photo well this shop lol it looks much better in the flesh its a real fun little shop!! Most things in here are either Bratz or Barbie sometimes you can find things the perfect size for Dolls Houses!

 I also had a little change around in the nursery shop as some of the more lovely pieces were a bit hidden so just moved things around a little and added the pictures on the wall. I adore this shop some of my most favourite ever things are in here!


  1. The nursery shop is gorgeous Paula!

  3. I like both shops; but nursery shop is sweet.
    Bye Faby

  4. Hi Paula, Just found your blog and so many lovely things to see, the nursery is one of my favourites too. I notice a cheeky cocker or two in your family, I know ours is naughty, a nightmare when he was a pup, but 12 years old now and a little better behaved, except for barking.
