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 dollies and a new house!

I have no idea what I have been doing in Dollyland this week lol I seemed to be in there fiddling about everyday but couldn't think of anything new to show you!! The music shop is coming along but will wait just a little longer before showing you that. I did manage a trip to the Dolls house shop in Inverness on Saturday and got a few new goodies but cant show you those yet either ha ha!!

I do have so new dollies to show you though!! I do love new people in the village every one is a new character and I can never have enough!!

First up is Dorothy a new WI lady. She is serving up the tea for the rest of the ladies although Elsie is already on the sherry!

Next is Thora who is getting a shampoo and set in the hairdresser's

Lynda is just making sure the hairnet is neatly in place!

Thora is enjoying her cup of tea and gossip mag!

I love this scene, its so much more fun now there are some people in it!

Then we have Stanley who runs the dolls house shop.

He is busy building a dolls house for a new customer!

And last but not least is Arty. Today I made him a straw hat, not bad for a first attempt!

He was planned to go in the music shop but I thought he looked more like one of those antiques dealers on bargain hunt so he's now residing in the junk shop instead!

I have also bought a new house!! I wasn't convinced the Christmas one was really right it was just a little too modern inside and I am rubbish at changing them as its right for the house and I don't want to spoil them!. I spotted this lovely Honeychurch shop on Ebay and it was a great price. Its all decorated in red and green perfect for a Christmas theme! Its still in the packing stages as the lady kindly agreed to pack it up for a courier and finding a box that big is never easy so I am more than happy to be patient!

Lastly I picked up this months copy of The Dolls House magazine and it came with a free book. Its a great read with loads of good pictures and although the mag was £4.75 I thought that was a good price for both!


  1. I like the new house, the store and office are downstairs and then you have a bedroom and bathroom upstairs for the store owner to live on the premises! it's going to look wonderful when you are done.


  2. There's just no stopping you is there - no one every believes you now when you say there's no more space! I like the new house too and great excitement for you in planning the new spaces.

    It's nice to see a customer in the hairdressers too. She looks very relaxed with her gossip mag!
