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 :-)

Moving houses!

After about 3 hours of moving houses around which would be easy if all the adapters weren't connected and I didn't have 100 extension leads running from one to another lol!!! there was really only 2 places Meadow Cottage could go because of the height! Either in the middle on the left where there is no shelf or at either end. It couldn't go one end as it covered the light switch, it just looked wrong in the middle as it just looked too out of sync with the others so that left only one space! On the other end where the harbour is.

It does look huge next to Lifeboat but then I guess all houses in little Cornish villages aren't the same size and I actually really love the big window there as it gives off so much light and the little balcony is perfect overlooking the harbour.

This one really is quite a lot bigger than my others which I knew but I kind of ignored that fact cos I really liked it!!

I was reluctant to move Barnacle as I liked it there but actually it works much better where it is as it has no windows you can't see into and now I can access it much easier now its at the back next to the B & B.

Heres a pic of it in its new spot. I added an alley down the left side with light as I just love them! Theres one between almost every house and they are fun to stick a bin or a fox down them for a bit of extra detail!

I had to lose the witches house from within the village to fit the new one it! Its is now on the windowsill in the same room just the other side of the village which is fine! I am going to try and fit the beach scene onto the shelf somehow! That way the witches one will just be by itself so I can add a garden and have some fun with the outside.

  1. Very nice city you have created here. In the 1-1 life there is also a big difference between the size of the houses. Your "boat" house is very beautiful.
