Welcome to Quayside my town by the seaside!
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 :-)

More new arrivals in the village!
The new residents to arrive today are....
Stan the seafood man. He did come with a red apron but I thought that made him look a little like a butcher so I made him a blue one. I also made his hat as the one he came with was sadly too small for him! Hes doing very well with his seafood stall! All the residents and visitors do like their fresh cockles and muscles!
Next up is the postie. No name as yet going to I am going to ask my real postie tomorrow what his name is as he always jokes when I get a big parcel 'I thought the last one was the last one??'!! Fingers crossed he's got a good one lol!!
The town crier was originally a mayor but I already had a mayor so Bernadette the lady I buy them from on Ebay kindly changed him into a town crier instead. He.s busy letting everyone know the party in the hall will be starting soon!
Theres also a new member of the WI. Shes Mary and doesn't give a jot what anyone thinks about anything she just likes to go with the flo! She says shes old to know better and to old to care! Shes definitely not your typical WI member but she goes along for the cake!
Next up are a new couple who have taken over the village store. Anyone Scottish that reads my blog will probably know a programme called Still Game and we are big fans! Our favourite character is Navid (pronounced Naveed) who runs the shop. So I had my very own Navid and his wife Meena made for my shop. They raised a few eyebrows when they first arrived as Quaysiders are very wary of any new 'outsiders' moving in, but they have already settled in well and have made lots of friends!
