about me


I'm Shannon! I write a lifestyle blog about thrifting, organizing, and home improvements. I also talk about what I am reading, wearing, or eating... actually anything that might be on my mind!

I started the blog in January 2010, when we underpinned our basement. I wanted to document the experience because I found very few home owner stories about the process online. If you are wondering about the blog name, the basement ceiling height, after the renovation, is 8' 6".

Thanks for coming by! I hope you enjoy the blog!
