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 :-)

New ideas!

Been moving things around in Dollyland again! I kind of enjoy doing it but don't even get me started on the lighting!! I was trying to make everything a bit more accessible as there were a couple that weren't so easy to access. I also didn't like the Barn up on the Upper Quayside shelf. I did try but whenever I looked at it up there I just didn't think it looked right!

I started by moving the Barn onto the windowsill next to Cockleshell. It looks just right there so I moved the flats off and will be getting another little house the same size as Cockleshell to go the other side. It makes it feel like a little street so this will be East Quayside!

I must have moved every house yesterday trying to get the layout right but however I did it I had one house too many!! I really wanted to make the flats into a dept store but I just can't fit them in! It would mean losing another house which I just can't do! For now they are emptied out awaiting their fate!

I love this shot it looks like you are looking down the street! I toyed with the idea of making Butterfly (the lilac one on the end) into a Christmas house and putting the dept store there instead but in the end I couldn't take it out its too much part of the village!

I made a nice little area behind the Bistro. I moved the pergola sideways so I could open the door of Butterfly properly. I laid some mosaic stone style lino down and created a little plaza so now Ernie has somewhere nice to sleep. I will eventually make some little steps to link the 2 levels together.

As I took the flats out I had to empty them all out. I moved the ground floor into the lower floor of Barnacle so now it has 2 holiday lets!

It worked quite well as it was the same colour scheme.

Stacey and Fred have moved back into Anchor cottage. Stacey is secretly pleased she wasn't getting much business over the other side of town!

The village also has a new arrival! This is Arthur! He's actually for my next project but I couldn't leave him out on the street like that! Rose was kind enough to lend him a seat. I hope she doesn't regret it!


  1. HAHAHAHA..I love it..Arthur on the throne..good one


  2. Loving the street view, it does look just like a real street, oh I do love Arthur, omg he made me laugh, he's brilliant!
