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 :-)

All move again and getting ready for a wedding!!

Last week when my new little cottage arrived I changed my mind where I was going to put it! I had a thought that now I had the space I should move the beach huts down and have them on the beach rather than on the shelf! That was easy but when I moved them they were now next to the big cottage which didn't look right. I must have moved them all around 10 times yesterday! Lindsay literally dragged me out at 11pm last night and switched all the lights off lol!

Go to your blog list

I eventually settled on the B & B next to the beach scene (after I tried the pub, the village hall and Barnacle cottage!! )

Next job is to get a nice piece of wood for a base and add the sand! I have a bit in the shed so that will be tomorrows job!

It makes much more sense to have the beach huts with the beach!

I also emptied out the beach huts and added some wood effect flooring. I will add some built in furniture made with strip wood. They will be great fun as I can do each one different.

Of course the downside of moving all the houses around, apart from the dreaded lights, is that everything falls over and has to be put back! While I was tidying up the village hall I made a start on a wedding party scene I have been meaning to do. I have just got some wonderful food from a lady on Facebook and its done a great job of filling the table. She made the ham, pasties. flan, platter and pasties all for under £5 and they are brilliant!

Theres a children's area with a clown to keep them amused. The table and chairs is courtesy of my friend Carol who is def one of Quaysides biggest fans!

The cake is ready and theres a small table to put all the gifts on.

I need to add lots of details like tablecloths, bunting and presents etc but at least I made a start!

The food looks good enough to eat! The pork pie was part of the job lot of meat I got for the butchers stall and was perfect I have been after some for ages!

I decided poor old Maddie could take a break from the B & B and enjoy some on the lovely weather. Here she is sitting in her little porch with Beans her best friend!

A couple of new items in the pub! A new stove to warm the place up on cold stormy nights and a resident dog to enjoy it! I have also moved Marylin behind the bar.(she kept falling over!)

Alfie the dog toasting by the fire.

And last but not least I moved Charlie and Reg to upper Quayside as they kept getting knocked off by the Bistro! Lots of shop windows to keep them busy up here!


  1. I love the beach huts - it's lovely to see them size wise in relation to the other houses, really looking forward to see what you do with inside each one.

  2. I can't wait to see the sandy beach and those beach huts are adorable!


  3. You always manage to find great bargains on ebay and at just the right time too!

    Love the overall shot of the houses. It's looking really good and it amazes me how you remember the names of all your characters.
