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 :-)

Meet Jack and Beryl!!

We have 2 new arrivals in the village this week!! I have really been trying to be good and stay off Ebay and it almost worked lol!!  I did have one weak moment and got tempted by a new doll as I am always on the lookout for different residents. When I saw the pirate I thought he would def fit into the seaside theme. There were actually 2 and was thinking should I get them both but the other one sold really quickly so the decision was made for me....prob just as well!! I love him he has such a great face and is of course called Jack!! He's loitering outside the pub at the mo although he better not stay there too long or Stacey will nab him!!

I always try and get a couple at a time as the postage costs are so high nowadays and are going up again soon!! I had seen a lady Bernadette made for someone, a bathing belle and thought she would look great on my beach scene. I asked if she could make me one and she made 2 and let me choose! Hard as it was I went for this lady as I liked her ample figure lol.

All set for a day at Quayside's lovely beach!

I have added some Barbie sunglasses and shoes and made her a magazine to read. I also made her a sun brolley from an old Bratz one!

I decided to call her Beryl after Beryl Cook as she reminded me of her fat ladies!

She has her lunch all ready to last the day!

Check out her roll round the middle its so funny it just makes me smile!!

I just love her she is such a fun doll and a great addition to the village!!!


  1. Oh I love them, especially Beryl, she reminds me of me!

  2. I just love Beryl, she's great, looks like she could give Stacey some competition lol Your pirate guy looks like he might be related to the Italian chef, maybe a long lost brother ;-)

  3. Both look wondeerful! The lady's figure is so adorable! I hope you don't mind me commenting..we haven't really "met" in blogworld..but is so much enjoy coming here and seeing your wonderful ideas! :) Many Greetings from Athens, Anne

  4. I am not yet familiar with all your characters being a very new follower. I do love the doll, though. She seems like a character. And the pirate looks like he might perhaps go for her. So, you had better keep an eye on those two.

  5. Love your new dolls, Beryl is just so perfect for your beach scene :).

  6. Beryl is funny! I like the beach scene .
    Bye Faby

  7. Beryl is just gorgeous. I love her air of unconcern about having so much midriff hanging out.:D

    Is it just coincidence that Jack showed up when Stacey opened for business?

  8. Beryl is brilliant. She looks so at home! Jack looks pretty much at home too outside the pub - they're great choices.
