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 :-)

Our caravan, Bootsale bargains and Blogger never works properly for me!

Had a busy weekend so far Bethany has gone to her Dads for a few weeks so she was needing dropped of at the airport yesterday. Also the caravan is rented this week so it had to be cleaned to within an in inch of its life lol The people renting were late arriving so its all been a bit hectic! They are very happy though and said it was a lovely van and was immaculate so it makes it all worth while!!

Here are a coupe of pics of our van its our home from home we just love it and are there as often as we can!!

The old tv has now gone lol we got that from a boot sale for £2 on our 1st weekend so we had something to watch! Believe me when I say its only ever this tidy the minute we arrive or the second we leave ha h!!

 Our cosy bedroom in the van.

Today we decided to go to the bootsale for a look round as we haven't been for ages. Its started out dry but poured down just as we were leaving and I always feel bad when everything gets soaked for all the poor people selling!

Anyway I got a few nice little bargains so it was worth getting out of bed! The little bear is for Bethany and I got a few little things too!

The little Sylvanian pram, the Bratz bags and skirt were for £1 for the lot........

I got a the Sylvanian cottage for £3 which was perfect as I have lots of little bits and pieces and have been on the lookout for a little house for them and this was ideal.

I couldn't resist the Holly Hobbie board as I already have quite a collection but it has been used so will just use it for my DH projects and will save my work surface! a bargain for just 20p!

I also got a couple of nice books. I am a really sucker for pretty books and these caught my eye. Funny thing was looking at the one on the right when I heard a 'Hi Paula' and looked up and saw it was my friend Scarlett who was there selling. It was nice to see her we haven't caught up for ages and she let me have the book as a gift which was sweet of her! I also saw my good friend Lynda who I haven't seen in ages so it was worth going just for seeing my fiends :-)

On the way back we also popped into Pets at Home for some gravel to do my church yard pathway. Huge bag for not much more than a little bad of DH or model stuff would be!

I was also wondering if it is just me that is finding blogger doesn't always work properly. I can never say hello to my new followers as it doesn't show the list of the names just the number of followers so apologies if I don't return the courtesy and  follow your blog! I would if I knew who you were lol I have also found a few blogs I would like to follow but the follow this blog button never seems to be there! Maybe its just me but I have tried in Opera and Firefox and neither of them seem to show everything!!!


  1. Nice buys. I was at the boot sale as well but arrived just before the rain started so only got a few things before everyone started packing up or covering up their stalls.

  2. I'm having the same problem with blogger- is being a member the same thing as a follower?

    And a couple of times , I've gotten a message- only team members can comment. Honey I shrunk the house is hiving me that message right now. Frustrating.

    Though you might check to see if the follow me is on a floating tab if it is on a dynamic view like on my blog.
