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.
