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 :-)

Knitting Pretty ready for Christmas

Now the Christmas shop was all finished I could make a start on Christmas in the rest of the village. As you know I had some fabulous little knitted things from DEB which arrived last week so today I have been busy getting Knitting Pretty the wool shop ready for the Xmas trading period! I put all of Debs lovely things in and wanted to make sure I fitted in every single piece!

The reindeer jumper had to be the centerpiece for the window display along with the cute golly and a sweet  little Xmas pud tea cosy.

You can see the jumpers, the lovely little dolls, even all the woolly hats and tea cosies everything for you to buy for all your Christmas gift needs.

His and hers Christmas jumpers!

Gorgeous little dollies!!

I had a small space at the side of the desk and wasn't sure what to fill it with. It wasn't wide enough for a shelf. I spotted these cute little crocheted hangers on Ebay for £1 each and made a little display rack for them and I think they are so sweet and so nicely made and they fill the gap just right!

Hats and tea cosies!

The reindeer jumper in the window is stunning although when she sells them now they will have a plain back as that was a bit of a mistake but it works in my favour as its great in the shop as you can see the pattern from the back!

I love this little shop its def one of my favourites and I will be so sad when Christmas is done I won't want to take all my lovely things out!!!!


  1. Oh Paula it's lovely! Even though I say so myself I love all the jumpers in the shop! They look perfect!

    I'd love to visit that knitting shop in real life, in fact i'd like to visit all your shops in real life!
