Thursday, a boudoir, and Etsy

It is that time again and my turn to conjure a room using only Etsy and imagination. So I read that the word "boudoir" comes from the French verb, bouder- to sulk. It was considered not only a lady's private room, but quite literally, "a place to sulk in". I do all my sulking right out in the open, but if I had a house with a boudoir space, I would love it to look a little like this.....
A charming vanity and bench...the seat covered in a beautiful fabric never to be marked with toddlers' sticky prints (this is make believe, so toddlers' fingers would never dare be sticky).

For the vanity, a classic tray and all the tiny displays of beauty.

Add just the right table and lighting....
