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 :-)

Decorated the lounge and I love my postman!

My second post today but couldn't resist showing my lounge now its all done! I Got my DHE order today amazing service as always only took a day!! Good as I hate waiting lol. Really pleased with everything except the modern dining set the fabric is yellow so doesn't match my room I thought from the pic is was cream and burgundy. not to worry though as I have a plan B!

Finally got my wallpaper up and I am really pleased with it! Has a nice modern feel and looks great with the sofa and chair. I went for the modern tables, mirrors and the chrome lamp and think they are perfect and look as good as I hoped they would so I am really pleased! Just need the all important cushions and a blind and prob a tv! Its looking very neat but a little bare for me!

 Got a hall table and some mirrors to liven the upstairs hallway up!

A mirror with hooks for the hallway......

I also got a few Ebay items. Some white bedroom furniture which is ok I did think the tall unit was a mirrored wardrobe but can easy make it into that but I do quite like the glass. I recovered a little ottoman I had just to fill the space at the end of the bed.

I couldn't resist the little pink tutu and its very cute!

I got some kitchen accessories like the HOME letters and remembered a little pan of baked beans I got from the DH fair.

I  also got some fab things for the kitchen! I always think kitchen white goods are the hardest thing to get looking fairly realistic but I found these Miele mini toy ones and they look fab! I could only get the dishwasher and oven from one seller and I ordered a washing machine elsewhere today so hopefully that will come shortly. There is also a fridge but I had one I could use so for now I resisted!

The dishwasher makes a gurgling watery noise..........

 I already had the microwave..............

And the cooker lights up inside and on the hobs. They are so cool I love them!!!


  1. Paula! Im exhausted by all your deliveries today LOL (and envious!).
    The kitchen really looks good now and I love all the mirrors in the hall way.
    Well done

  2. Lol I do wonder what my postman thinks I am up to getting so many deliveries in one go!! None til next week now get busted at the weekend by OH and get a lecture about spending money ha ha! Glad you like it though :-)

  3. I tried to get some of the mini Miele white goods on ebay a while ago but was outbid so I'm a bit jealous ;).

  4. Lol Diane mine were Ebay but they were buy it now so thankfully it wasn't me that outbid you! ha ha!!!
