Adopt a Log

Bir Kütük Evlat Edinin
bosluk
Çok küçük olmalıyım; bir gün ailemle ormana yürüyüşe gitmiştik. Ve orada biçimi bir köpeği andıran bir ağaç kökü parçası bulmuştum. "Kütük" ismini taktığım bu yaratığa ip bağlayıp gezdirdiğimi hayal meyal hatırlıyorum. Bu kütükte sıcak birşeyler görmüş olmalıyım. Doğadaki herşey gibi her biri tamamen kendine has biçimde olan, "ateş"i çağrıştırarak insanoğlunun ilkel güdülerine hitap eden, bir ağacın bilgeliğini, ama aynı zamanda uzun ömrünün sona erişinin hüznünü yansıtan, aslında dışarıya ait olan kütükler, son zamanlarda aniden iç mekanlarda kendilerine yer bulmaya başladı. Doğa özlemi ile yanıp tutuşanların seveceği bir obje olsa gerek...

I must have been very little, one day me and my family went for a walk at a forest, and I found a piece of tree roots which resembled a dog's shape. And I kind of adopted it, put it on a leash, and called it "Stump". Well, I must have seen some warmth in that log. How could I not? Logs have so much hidden context in them; they remind us of "fire", which sort of gets to our primitive selves, and we can see the lines of a tree in them, which makes us think about the wisdom of a tree, and it also contains the sorrow caused by the end of a tree's life. They belong to the outdoors but recently we have started to see them indoors too. It is a material/accessory fit for those who are longing for nature...

Cool post. I really like the concept, though, I would never pay more than $100 for a stump I can find myself. And my ankle boots I got from Macy's on the sales rack. $33!! It's by Dolls by Nina.

Wood is a great material for every type of house. This is a good addition to your rustic furniture. There are truly many ways to make logs or woods a piece of decoration inside your home just like the photos shown above. Natural materials are not expensive at all and you can simply polish them to make it look special.
