Nie Nie


I stumbled upon the sad story of what has happened in the life of the fellow blogger pictured above, and I felt that I should share the information. Nie Nie (or Stephanie) has inspired many with her blog. She's a wife. She's a sister. She's a mother to four little ones. In August of this year, she and her husband, Christian, were critically injured in a private plane crash. The pilot succumbed to his injuries. Nie Nie and her husband are still in serious condition at the Burn Center in Phoenix.
In an attempt to raise money for the months of hospital care that the couple will require in order to recover, Design Mom has set up auctions- with all proceeds going to a recovery fund for them. If you feel inclined, go check them out! There are lots of neat goodies to be bought! Trust me! I'll share some of my goodies soon! Remember, the money is for a really good cause!
**EDITED TO ADD** Several of the auctions are still LIVE. Just look for the LIVE beside the auction. If you participate in any auction for $20 or more, make sure you check out Laundry Tree Soap Nuts. They are offering two free sample packs to anyone that donates at least $20 to the NieNie Recovery Fund (whether it's an out-right donation, or by biding on an auction) through Monday, September 8th! I've been really interested in trying out soap nuts in lieu of laundry detergent, and now I'll get to try them out for free! Their moto is "Clean Laundry Naturally". Thank you Laundry Tree!

That is such a sad story. I hope and pray for the couple's recovery. You left me a message (thanks!) and asked about my fleur de lis curtain clip rings. I have been racking my brain trying to figure out where I got them and I just can't remember. I have had them several years. Sorry! I'll keep my eyes open for some and let you know if I find any.
