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 :-)

Here comes the bride!

I got an idea in my head to do a wedding scene and now it won't go away! I really enjoyed doing the honeymoon suite in the B & B and I love my bridal shop so it seemed inevitable I would end up creating a whole wedding! Got an idea for the church which I hope (fingers crossed!) will work out. If it goes to plan I will lose the garden next to Porthole as its not very exciting anyway. I will make a pretty church yard with and arbour covered in roses and a lovely Quayside wedding.

I had a man doll I quite liked so he will be the groom and after far too long searching for the internet for a bride doll and not really finding any I liked I decided to make my own! The doll is Amelia who has lived in Quayside for a while and thought she was my prettiest lady so she would make the best bride! The dress was stolen from the bridal shop (made by my friend Sylvia!) It originally had a long matching train which was too big for displaying in the shop so I had taken that off and put it in my fabric box. Lucky I kept it as I needed to add sleeves to the dress as the Amelia has padded arms. I made a net skirt to go underneath to fill it out a bit. I used the veil and headdress I had made for the honeymoon suite to loosely pin back her hair and added a bouquet to complete her look. I think she looks lovely and very much the blushing bride! All she needs now is a bridesmaid!! and the vicar? well hes on his way!!!!
