A couple of posts back, I mentioned that I was going to show you more of My Eclectic Home. So today, I am sharing with you, a collection that always makes me smile. Their cute little faces and joyful expressions as well as their pretty colors, will always cheer me up. I have been collecting these anthropomorphic little guys for about 17 years.

Anthropomorphic -adjective\ˌan(t)-thrə-pə-ˈmȯr-fik\

1.: described or thought of as having a human form or human attributes <anthropomorphic deities>

2.: ascribing human characteristics to nonhuman things<anthropomorphic supernaturalism>

                   These are all salt and pepper shakers, mostly fruits and veg, and a few birds and flowers.

The birds in the bottom right hand corner, are not really anthropomorphic, but I liked them, so they are included in the collection.

                 I have some of these cute collectables sitting amongst retro kitchenware....which I also love!

I love these spoon and fork salt and pepper shakers!
Sadly one, of my dill pickle guys had an accident and broke a few months ago. I must admit, I shed a tear when that happened.  I am hoping to eventually find another one. Any of you remember those dotty coffee mugs?

            Very girly..cream and sugar bowls, with a matching string holder in the background.


             Matching cookie jar, and S&P shakers. I found these separately from the girls above.


      More, love, love, these strawberries! 
Sugar bowl and s&p shakers. 
(There must be a matching cream jug out there.)

So which ones are your favorites?
