On the eighth day of Christmas Daily Delights, I give to thee…EIGHT MAIDS-A-MILKING! (And: SEVEN SWANS-A-SWIMMING, SIX GEESE-A-LAYING, FIIIIIIVVVEEEEE GOOLLLDEENNNNN RIIIIINNNGSSSS, FOUR CALLING BIRDS, THREE FRENCH HENS, TWO TURTLE DOVES AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREEEEE!)
Clockwise from top left: Spode Blue Room Traditions Dinner Plate(s) Milkmaid, Milking Stool, ixxi Contemporary Pixel Illustration of the ‘Milkmaid’, Handstamped Cow on Milk Ad Knob, Cowhide Pillow Black & White, Blue Cow Soap, Harold Import 82-234 Porcelain Cow Creamer 6 Oz, Diner White Cow Milk Bottle 12 oz.
I’m cheating a little on this one, since I only featured two actual maids (the plate and the pixel wall art of Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid”), but hey, you try finding some attractive milkmaid products! It’s a little ironic that I’m showcasing milk-centric items, considering I’m deathly allergic to milk in real life, but I suffer for my art. At least I am not allergic to those playful milking stools, thank goodness.
