House Home and Up-Date

It has been an emotional two weeks and I wasn't sure how to start this post!  So many of you have been sending prayers and positive thoughts our way and we so appreciate it!

 My son is still in I.C.U. and slowly making progress..He has swelling on his brain, broke his neck and broke both arms in 5 different areas. He has had two surgeries within two weeks. We've been told its going to be a long recovery, but he will recover! 

I've had to put all projects on hold for now so I thought I would share with you some of my vignettes around the house.. 

I have shells and coral displayed around my house and I love to use these oriental stands to display them..

I found this antique dish and filled it with corals, shells and crystals..its one of my favorite displays in my home.

Baskets are a great way to display shells.

For some reason I have a collection of these basket suitcases...not sure why I have so many, but I do! 

These are the fabrics for my new dining room chairs..the animal print will go on the front and the stripe on the back..the dark blue fabric is on the two head chairs. 

We've had so many people love on us.  Bringing us dinners and praying for our son. Its always so touching to see the kindness in people and the love they have to share.  Thanks again for the sweet and kind emails you have sent us..




  1. Julie, thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  2. I am so sorry to hear this! Prayers for your son and whole family!

  3. Oh, Julie...I had no idea! Today is the first time I've sat down to read blogs in forever! I am so sorry and will definitely be praying! I will check back often...if there is anything specific you want me to pray for just let me know. Iv'e been in a similar situation with that phone call and it definitely is the worst thing ever! Much love is sent your way!

  4. Oh thank God! Hang in there...beautiful vignettes.

  5. You've been on my mind and your son in my prayers. I'm relieved to know her will be ok and yes a difficult road made easier knowing he will be ok. :)

  6. Julie, thank you for the update, I am keeping your son in my thoughts and prayers. This has to be the hardest thing you have ever gone through. God is with you and I am praying that the angels wrap their arms around your family. Sending my love and a big cyber hug,

  7. Oh my goodness so appreciate the update. I have been thinking of you. My daughter broke her neck at the end of her junior year in high school. She did not have nearly the serious injuries your son has but she recovered fully and has a cadaver bone in her neck.

  8. How wonderful he's getting better. Your family is in my prayers!

  9. Oh my gosh you poor thing! He is a gorgeous young man and he looks strong so he will heal, you just have to stay strong along with him too! I used to be a ICN nurse years ago so if there is anything you need to run by me or confused about with his recovery please dont hesitate to email me. xo K

  10. Oh my goodness Julie, I'm so sorry, I just read about the motorcycle accident.I can't even imagine what you've been going through. Despite the long road to recovery, what a a relief to know he will be ok. Sending prayers your way sweet friend!

  11. Julie I have thought of you and your family so often. What can be more difficult, I do not know. I know he is on the way to recovery as slow as it may be. Hold those crystals in your hands as you pray and know that much love surrounds you!

  12. Thank you for the update. I've been thinking about you and your son, hoping for a good report.

    He'll have a long recovery, but the good news is that the medical methods and science are so much more advanced now than even a few years ago . . . I've had two major broken bones, so I know that healing is frustrating and takes time, but tell him it's worth it. Hang in there!

  13. Julie, continued prayers for him and you all. I'm glad he is making progress. And thank you for these lovely vignettes. L

  14. Julie,
    I'm relieved to hear that your son will recover...I cannot imagine the worry and stress his accident has caused. I'll continue to hold good thoughts and send all prayers your way for his recovery.

    I've always loved your style, especially the magic you do where vignettes are concerned. I love the shells and coral with the blue and white.

  15. God bless you and your family. I've emailed you separately, Julie, and am hurting for you! xo Nancy

  16. oh julie, what a shocking report but to know he will recover is such good news. blessings, prayers and hugs to you girlfriend, this has been a tough year for all of you. be good to yourself

  17. Julie, I am behind reading. So sorry about you son. I hate motorcycles. My daughter's father in law was in a very bad accident on his a few months before my daughter was to get married. He also pulled through and it was long recovery, but he is all well. Sending prayers your son's way.

  18. Thank you for taking the time to share your lovely home.I continue to keep you and your son in my prayers.

  19. HI Julie,
    As a mother I can only imagine what you have been through....continuing to keep you in my thoughts.

  20. I'm so sorry for your family. I'm hoping one day this will just be a distant memory. Hugs to you!

  21. julie. i'm with you in spirit. i am so sad to hear about the accident. i will be in prayer and ask for healing mercies. i am sending peace and light to your family, knowing that a way will somehow be made through this wilderness. stay strong and feel the support around you. much love.

  22. This is the precise weblog for anybody who needs to seek out out about this topic. You notice so much its almost arduous to argue with you. You positively put a brand new spin on a subject that's been written about for years. Nice stuff, simply nice!
