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 :-)

Quayside update!

As promised a Quayside update! I haven't been in there too much lately my vintage collecting has been keeping me busy! I am also trying to curb my spending on minis as I spend way too much!!! I have been very good the past few weeks so had to make sure I had enough new things to show you lol!!

I did a small DHE order a few weeks ago as some of their items are very cheap at the moment. I got this lovely metal cot reduced from over £15 for under £5!

I got Becky a nice shelf unit for her little tea room which was reduced to about £3.50

Its such a small room but works lovely as a little place for a cake and tea!

The little pink cottage was £1.25!

I also invested in a couple of new residents as the village felt a bit neglected! I have tried a police station but it didn't really work so I gave up but when I saw this doll Detta had for sale I decided to have another go! Lots to do in here!

Wendy is the other new arrival! As you know I moved the flower shop out of the corner shop to turn it into a funky icecream parlour. Of course it needed someone to run it and she's just the part!

Still some work to do but I have laid new aluminium style flooring and papered the walls. I have new seating and jukebox that plays music and lights up.

Its def got the feel I was after and works really well in here!

I had to have another switch around to make space for the police station as this was my only empty shop and it def wasn't right for it!

I moved the sweet shop in here and the music shop (blue with bays) back in the pink one (former sweet shop) and then the post office (blue flat fronted)  back into the blue one with the bays and that left the flat fronted blue one free for the police station....got that??? lol

My Daughter had a good clear out in her bedroom on Saturday as now shes 20 she's apparently a 'grown up' and decided she wanted rid of all the STUFF in her room! She had this little cabinet full of odds and ends and she didn't want it so I stole thinking it would make a lovely place to store all my little vintage dolls that don't have a home! I have put a few odd bits of furniture inside and will decorate it to make it pretty! It fits perfectly on top of the bookcase where a house would be too big!
