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 :-)

A very productive bootsale!!

It was a nice day today so we decided to venture out to the huge bootsale in Inverurie. Its about a 45 min drive from our house so we decided not to go early like we usually do, around 7.30am as no one wanted to get out of bed and if they do they all end up tired and grumpy lol! We got there around 10.30am and it was super busy! Was def worth going though as I got some great little bargains!

I got the hugest bundle of Bratz clothes which I use when making my dolls. Lots of things I can have some fun with a few nice little accessories too. I love the little bags! I have quite a few in the handbag shop but this will give me a few more.

I sorted it all out much to Bethanys amusement her 43 year old Mother playing with dolls clothes!

There were loads of trousers.......


Jackets and coats..........

Dresses and skirts............


There were even a few nice little accessories that will come in handy like the little bucket and the lifebouy. Theres even a tiny bikini!

I got 13 bunches of flowers in all different colours for £1.50 for the lot.

I also got this little dresser for 50p which I though I could do something with.

And I also got a soldering iron kit for £5 which should come in handy!

The glass cupcake board was also 50p and will be useful for making things on.

Lastly a couple of flower fairy pictures which were 50p for both!!

Bethany also got lots of nice New look clothes with tags still on and a couple of Me to You bears which saves a small fortune on the full price so she was very happy! Was def worth getting out of bed and making the effort it was a very productive day!!


  1. You got a lot of fantastic stuff. Gosh I remember my youngest was into the bratz their clothes cost a lot so you got a great bargain :) I love the flower fairy pictures.

  2. It's a good idea to go later as they start selling stuff off cheaper just to get rid of it ;). I was there too but arrived just after 9am which is very early for me and was finished by 11am. Got a few bargains :).
