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 :-)

Sylvanian cottage madeover!

I was bored yesterday afternoon so decided to give the cottage I picked up at the bootsale a mini makeover, it was a nice way to spend a couple of hours!! as you can see my little helper is ever present! :-)

I have loads of odd bits of Sylvanian including for some reason tons of babies lol A lot are Bethanys from when she was little and  the rest picked up at bootsales or charity shops. I decided to make a little nursery school. Some babies are sleeping, some are playing, some are having a bottle and some sitting outside.

The little pram on the left was 20p from the bootsale yesterday also.   It would make a cute little house but I know my niece will love it set up as the nursery its prob much more fun to play with than if it was just a house!

  I didn't really like the red roof so added some tile paper which I think looks much better.

I also added some wallpaper on a couple of walls and the upstairs ceiling as it was really dark. I added some flooring using up some scraps left over from my Fairbanks.

The Mums are doing what Mums do best having some cake!!

I got the little name sign from the DH shop on my last visit for 45p and thought it suited it nicely. I knew it would come in handy somewhere!


  1. Beautiful! I like this sweet family.
    Bye Faby
