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 :-)

Happy Easter and a few mini projects!

Just wanted to do a quick post to wish everyone a Happy Easter! I am lucky enough to have my family up from down South and it was my Dads 65th Birthday yesterday so it was lovely to have him here for that!

That was yesterday though lol so today I thought I would make use of this talents and got him to make me some pub benches for the soon to be expanded pub! He has done a brilliant job of them...well done Pops!!

While he was busy beavering away making those for some strange reason I had an idea to make a little garden for in between the witches shop and house. I already had everything so it was a nice cheap little project and worked out quite nicely. Its added a bit of interest where there was just a space before!

And last but not least a couple of new arrivals to show you! I managed to win a couple of dolls for a bargain price on Ebay a few days ago. I was desperate to win the fisherman as I just fell in love with him! I was lucky enough to win him for just £6!! His name is Cyril after the man that ran the newsagents a few doors down from my Parents toyshop when they lived in Newquay.

I also won the cheeky little paper boy too who is called Jim!

That's it for now just a quick update and wishing you all a lovely Easter!!! xxx


  1. Happy Easter to you too and Happy Birthday to your dad, I can see the resemblence :). The pub benches are great and love the witches garden.

    How many residents do you have in Quayside now?

  2. Happy Easter Paula. The benches are great and you've done a lovely job on the garden. The fisherman and paper boy are lovely.

  3. Your father does beautiful work. I love your new garden and the new residents you have acquired.

  4. The witches garden was an excellent idea! How lovely to have your dad with you, it's obvious you follow him with your crafts, his benches are great! I hope you're having a Happy Easter!

  5. Imagine getting your dad to work on his holidays!! He's made a grand job of the little benches - I can see him being roped in for other stuff now!

    Your two new inhabitants of the Village will make great new characters. What will the paper boy get up to, I ask?
