the good green earth in home










These are some of my most cherished images of home living I have ever found. I adore green in home. I added a large leafed fern in pot to Lola's room, a green plant in a beautiful planter to our kitchen, and I'm working on a fern project I plan to post here at Flux.
I hope you all have had a beautiful day. Today was the Due Date of our lost Curry baby. We mourn today. It has been long and hard and deeply sad to have empty arms today, and blessed beyond words to have my children and my Mr. Curry to fill them.

Maggie--like the Van Morrison song "it's not easy being green..."

My thoughts are with you as you mourn.

I have no words that could possibly be of comfort to you other than to say that I am so very sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers - I wish you solace and healing.

And green in the house is a lovely thing, indeed. The pictures are dreamy, the settings cozy, and the mood is familiar.

Petunia Face said...

And you have us. No arms but words and emoticons :/
Virtual hugs and listening...

Angie Muresan said...

And our prayers and thoughts are with you, wishing for the pain to go away.

Diana said...

The one with the wall clouds are so sweet.

I remember your moments of that time, and thank you for sharing. You are in my thoughts.

Oh Maggie May. My heart is with you. I read your earlier post - your poem about your lost child and it really grabbed me... now this. December 2nd is my son's birthday. He turned 22. We got to celebrate while you quietly grieved. I am so sorry. But I want you to know that your post reminded me to be so very thankful and never take one moment of life for granted.

As for the green... the photos are all so so pretty! I especially like the climbing Philodendron.

Ariadne said...

Stunning pics.

And so very sorry for your loss :(

Beth said...

I love your decorating taste – we can always dream – and we should.

Hugs and love to you at this time. I know how these special days can hurt…

Rachael said...

Virtual hugs to you on what I'm sure must have been a very hard day.

Love the pics.

I love green and flowers in the home too - unfortunately for mine, it's like issuing them a premature death sentence. I try though.

Hugs to you and yours Miss Maggie.

lovelovelove to you.

Shana said...

I'm sorry for your loss. And I'm glad you're finding beauty in your world, even in the face of grief.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Sending you love, Maggie. I am thinking of you.

Many blessings,

krista said...

if i could wrap up all the green goodness into a bottle that you could spray or spritz or rub onto pressure points, i would douse you with it.
all in hopes the air would feel lighter.
xoxo
much love to you and the family, maggie. so much love.

Mwa said...

Thinking of you, too. x

Green is growth and hope and faith. Green is life.
Maggie- I am holding my grandson in my arms and he makes up for any loss I ever had. Time may not heal all wounds, but it has a way of taking care of us.
Sending love on this hard day.

Cat said...

Thinking of you.

Nancy Campbell said...

XOXOXO on the challenges you'll face today.

Annie said...

Hi Maggie,

Hugs and love... I used to have green in my home, and I have two plants that decorate my desk area at work. You've reminded me how nice it is to have plants, so I think I'll be adding them soon.

Lola Sharp said...

Maggie May,
Sending you compassionate hugs and loving positive energy from the east coast.

Love the greenery photos...I'm particularly smitten with the trailing philodendron.

Love,
Lola

Life always seems to have that mix of grieving what we've lost and cherishing what we have. It's good to see your mix tipping more and more toward the latter with every day that passes.

Phoenix said...

Sweetie - I am so incredibly, deeply sorry.

Keeping you in my thoughts today.

Babe in Babeland said...

These photos are BEAUTIFUL. They actually gave me so much peace to look at them...an inspiration that perhaps my home could actually look like that someday.

I'm so sorry to hear about Baby Curry. I am thinking about you. I know it is a hard thing...someone close to me is recovering from a miscarriage right now...I am sending you a warm, round hug.

Life As I Know It said...

I love these photos. They are comfortable in the most satisfying of ways.

I'm sorry for your loss. I've been there too.

Allegra Smith said...

Thinking of you. Go plant something outside, the world needs something green and hopeful too. Something a Little Prince could take care of from the stars. Something you can give for something that was taken away from you. The Law of the Gift.
None more soothing to the spirit.

Lacey said...

I can't wait to see pictures, I want to see pictures of them ALL!

I'm so sorry for your loss today. It will always be a birthday, no matter what.

Darcy said...

I'm so sorry about your loss Maggie :-( Sending you a prayer today.

just making my way said...

Sending you love today - even though I'm late. Those pictures are beautiful. I especially love the second one. I can imagine lying on that sofa with a good book for many an afternoon.

Hug those kids and Mr. Curry tight. I know you will.

xoxo

My sympathies.

Lora said...

Love to the entire family

deb said...

Why we suffer I don't understand.
But choosing to seek beauty and share it... this speaks so much of your heart and soul.
I am inspired by this little I know of you.

thoughts of peace for you

hayley said...

i'm reading this post a little late, but i'm thinking of you and your family now. as usual with your writing, you have a beautiful perspective - those rooms, the ferns, your children - i hope it can all comfort you during this time. xoxo

Lola~ said...

I would give anything to live in some of those pictures...
There are no words to tell you how sorry I am that you don't have your beautiful baby to hold.
