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 :-)

Seafood anyone????

I decided to have ago at making my seafood market stall today. I bought the set of 3 off Ebay and they worked out about £5 each which I thought was pretty good value! The first one I had already decided would be a seafood stall after all the locals need somewhere to sell their catch!

I started by removing the fabric. I then repainted the whole thing with 2 coats of a nice duck egg blue. Then the wheels got a coat of black acrylic to make them all shiny and new! I added some new fabric for the canopy which looks much better. Then the fun part! I bought the shellfish as a job lot of Ebay which was a good way to do it as I got a really good selection for not a huge price tag! The bag of 'ice' was very cheap but really makes a difference to the whole thing. Next I added the net with a few things stuck on and some glass lifebuoys, and last but not least some signs by the talented sign writer that is my daughter, although she moans every time!!!

This is before...............

And this is after........

Here they are side by side so you can really see the difference! The next one has its wheels done just needs its new colour but I can't decide what!

Just had to show you some more mini knitting I received today form my lovely friend Deb!! Still can't believe she made these all freehand with no patterns! Shes so clever aren't they just fab and great fun think there will have to be a Halloween party in the village hall just to show them off lol!! Please visit her Ebay and buy some lol as sadly shes not getting many sales and will prob stop knitting them if they don't sell which would be such a shame so please take a look and buy buy buy lol!!!!
