Moustache season @ mill'k

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces around the world. The aim of which is to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer.

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Mill'k decided to join this initiative. Our very own hus haas, melk man en melk vrou and kewpie decided to grow a moustache of their own.
Movember brooches are available for the women and children (and some men) who are unable to join in this Movember's festivities.
Send us a mail @ to order your very own Movember brooch @ R45 each (wholesale prices available)

pick me! pick me!

If you have ever visited our website ( you would have noticed our landing page...
Scroll around with the mouse pointer and you will see the animals reacting!
This reminded me of the SHREK movie and the famous quote of donkey..."pick me! pick me!"

Shrek: Does anyone know where this Farquaad guy is?
[Donkey jumps up and down, shouting out like a young child]
Donkey: Oh, I know! I know where he is!
Shrek: Does anyone ELSE know where to find him?
Donkey: Pick me! Pick me! Me! Me!

This got us thinking, so we got creative!!!
We introduce to you our very own DONKEY!!!
Pick me! Pick me! Donkey (send us a mail for the price)
Hope it makes you smile!

Millk @ handsomethings

Millk is a HUGE fan of the blog handsomethings...We are honoured to be featured on their blog...thank you!

Kewpies @ Millk

Millk Kewpies...pop a mail to order...
What is the “Kewpie doll” ? ….yes Kewpie with a “K”

The name is derived from “cupid”, the Roman god of beauty,  and is based on the comic strip-like illustrations of Rose O’Neill  which appeared in the Ladies’ Home Journal in 1909 (more than 100 years ago). Paper cutouts (from both the front- and back side..hehe) of the dolls were printed in this Journal, and so the journey began.

Rose O’Neil once said: “Cupid gets you into trouble and the Kewpies get you out, always searching out ways to make the world better and funnier.”

This is why Kewpie dolls are one of the most unique dolls that have been created (Barbie might be heavy competition).

Kewpie has the sneaky looking side glancing eyes and the quaint little smile that leaves people wondering what’s going through that Kewpie’s head. Maybe it’s a smile of victory from enduring time!

I leave you with the true words from the creator of Kewpie –

“Do good deeds in a funny way. The world needs to laugh or at least smile more than it does”-Rose O’Neil
