I’m Thilini and I’m a self-diagnosed haberdashery hoarder!

They say the first step is admitting it, now I’ll get to the story…

My husband and I lived in London before and in order to update pieces from my wardrobe, I would go to random stores (and Amazon) and purchase material, lace, buttons and lots of spikes. In 2013, my husband and I gave up our day jobs, moved to Sri-Lanka and started our own restaurant (the dream) but since then, I never had enough time. My collection, however, did not deplete. Instead, it grew into our entire guest bedroom!

Fast forward to 2018, I’m now a stay-at-home mummy (most of the time), aspiring designer (we’ll get to that later) and (Finally) using all the knick-knacks I’ve accumulated. I thought I’d share my DIY journey (one tassel at a time) with anyone who loves to get their hands dirty and hopefully, through this journey, I can actually have a guest stay in our guest bedroom too.

So as Albert Einstein once said, “Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.”

Happy reading,
