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 :-)

Feeling inspired!!

Nothing new to report in Quayside YET! I spent all last night rearranging the village as I felt it wasn't quite right! I had 2 empty shops and the bag shop wasn't working so I scrapped that idea too! I just haven't been inspired since I moved it all! But yesterday the ideas started flowing and I couldn't stop them lol I adore Debs mini knitted things and love the little balls of wall you can get so I have decided to make the purple one into a wool shop. It will be called KNITTING PRETTY. Edna is busy giving it the once over before the new owners move in!

 The pink one will become a flower shop as I seem to have loads of them! The blue one I am tossing up between a fish shop and a gallery so still thinking on that one. The blue front is now empty so I have decided to make that into a party /fancy dress shop. It only needs a window display and I can still do seasonal ones. The idea came from a lovely clown doll I bought yesterday that I just fell in love with!

I moved all the houses around which in itself isn't that hard but redoing all the lights is a nightmare! I have a lovely space on the harbour for a new house now!! I moved Barnacle as I felt it looked much better over that side!

So I have lots to do and loads of projects to be getting on with its great when you feel like that!!!


  1. yes it is and Im sure it will be a nice knitting shop

  2. I like the first picture.
    Bye Faby

  3. Hi Paula
    Sorry I've not commented for a while. my computer is broken at home so I read your posts at work but dont have time to say hi.

  4. Thanks everyone and nice to hear from you Simon! Glad you like the dolls they are a learning curve and prob only a Mother could love them ha ha!! Have a good weekend too!!

  5. I was a bit worried about having water outside the B&B! Better with Barnacle as it advertises boat trips!

  6. I think Barnacle looks much better on the harbour glad you agree! And the B & B guests should be ok at least its not the pub!
