"Room of One's Own shadowbox concept and photos © Kay Stephens
In 1929, Virginia Woolf's essay "A Room of One's Own" imagined a literal and figurative space for women writers. As a writer myself, I made this miniature room out of a vintage cigar box that imagines that space.
I made the furniture myself, a rustic ladder back chair and a simple writing desk, as well as a tiny cork board and a "picture window" made from a vintage postcard of a harbor in Maine. When you have a room like this, you need a beautiful view.
On the desk is a little blotter with inkwell and pad of paper, a New International Dictionary, a marked up manuscript, and a glass of wine.
I can also do custom work (for only $5 extra) where your favorite miniature book is included on the desk and a custom Post It Note is added on the tiny cork board.
The cigar box can even close so you can take it with you. This is an ideal, one-of-a-kind gift for the writer in your life or yourself. Only one left on Etsy. Buy
