my barbapapa collection: salt and pepper shakers

As you may have read in previous posts, I am a huge Barbapapa fan, and have been collecting the odd Barba-item here and there. And no, my house is not filled top to bottom and wall papered with all this stuff (since that would be a bit scary). I got this lovely set of ceramic salt and pepper shakers for Christmas from my sister. Aren't they cute? It makes me want to constantly season all my food.

I love these. (And I'm relieved to learn you're reigning in the collection so you aren't wallpapering your whole house with them. ;) Collections gone bad... not good. I saw this dude who collected womens' heels and bowling balls once... need I say more?) ;)
