This Eight Maids Dairy keepsake is hand-crafted from ¾” thick wood with a colorful front design and its corresponding verse written on the back. It can set neatly on a shelf, desk or narrow ledge such as window or door trim. Group it with other pieces in the collection to create your own little Village!
The traditional folk song, “The Twelve Days Of Christmas” as we know it, is attributed to English composer Frederic Austin (c. 1909). Cat’s Meow creator, Faline Jones, developed this collection of 12 houses imagining what each verse would look like in a village setting.
"On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, eight maids a-milking."
