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 :-)

Let there be light!

It seems funny posting about my manor house as its so different to my cottages and more modern houses! But I finally took the plunge at added some lights!! I look back and remember how terrified at the thought of doing it but having the smaller houses and changing odd lights here and there really helped!

 I bought a few lights cheap from Ebay, like the candelabra in the dining room and had enough other odd spare wall lights and lamps to do the rest. I won a socket strip on Ebay for couple of pounds  and I suddenly realised a few days ago I actually had everything I needed so do it I took the plunge! It was a fab moment turning them on after 5 years the house just came to life  I stuck to wall lights and lamps as it just seemed the easiest option. Thought I would share some updated photos as its been ages since I took any! This house will always be a little bit special to me as it was my very first!
