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 :-)

The Cupcakery Bakery

I have very almost finished my little bakery I am just waiting on one more little thing but postie has just been and its still not here so I couldn't wait any longer to take some pics!

Here is the inside in all its gorgeous pinkness!

My counters arrived from Maggie at the Dolls house shop in Inverness. She really was a lifesaver as I don't know what I would have done if she hadn't had any left......there was no plan B lol! I already had the tall counter and really wanted the 2 smaller matching ones so thank goodness she still had them, although  I was very lucky she only had one of each left!!!

I decided to stick with the white wire stand rather than spend money on a new one. I have made this a little retail area with jars of homemade frosting, cupcake books and I made the little apron, all for sale.

Here it is slightly turned so you can see it better.

The tall counter now matches the 2 smaller ones.

It always surprises me just how much you can fit into such a small space!!

The little clock on the wall is just printed from Google images and stuck onto a button.

Theres a few more jars of cake decorations some little nail art flower slices do the job and look so effective for pennies!

I wasn't sure whether to put signs on the counter but decided against it and added some pretty Cath Kidston paper instead. I made the little boards for the cupcakes as they came on round plates which meant I could only fit 2 in so having the boards meant I could then fit 3 in giving a much better choice for the customers.

The cakes are all made by FRAN from Ebay I was going to have a go at making them but hers always look so good and I was lucky to win them all for a really good price so thats my justification!! The flake cakes aren't really cupcakes but they were so cute I couldn't resist! The cute little cupcake bags were from the lovely LUCY on Ebay. I could prob have made them but the money goes to a good cause so that was an good enough excuse to buy them!!

The little tongs, cake slice and glass cake stand were from Ebay and are lovely! The thing I am waiting for is some little CK tissues that I will cut up and make little serviettes to fill the basket on the counter.

I think all I may add is a little food mixer painted pink of course and that will be it! Its been so much fun to do and I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I did making it!!!

I may have been very very naughty today...........I will tell you why soon :-)
