They arrived as buttons, the elephants did. I thought I had bigger plans for them. Elephants are herding animals, so I figured they wanted to stick together. I removed what made them a button and made a necklace (much better than a button, right?) Three of them were grouped together, trunk to tail, in a march across someone's neck...NOT. They flipped over and hung upside down from the chain. Dangit!!
At the drawing board, the next day, I decided to add a washer between each elephant. Washers were cleaned and drilled. They were tediously linked to the elephants...AGAIN!! ...NOT. They flipped over and hung upside down from the chain. Dangit, AGAIN!!
Elephants 2, Karen 0. Really? So I separated each one, gave them their own space and chain. They seemed more at peace. Yes, that's a box for wine, but the wine is gone, lol. (Elephants' fault)
Most of them got a little bling with their very own chain, one got extra company. We are all happy now...or at least finally finished.
Were the elephants mad because I unbuttoned them?
