The Festive Farmhouse
FRIENDSHIP/SISTERHOOD ORNAMENT (ELEPHANT)
BACK ORDER NOTE: Due to features in several publications, our Elephant ornaments are now on back order and will ship out on 12/10. If your order contains multiple items, they will all ship together after 12/10. (Unless otherwise specified) Thank you for your patience!
In the wild, female elephants are known as fierce protectors. They literally form a circle around sisters who are hurting or grieving. And often, they will kick dirt up around her to mask the scent of suffering...in turn, keeping her safe from predators.
And yet, we are the same. This is what we do. This is who we are. And this is who we are meant to be for each other. We all have elephants in our lives. Sometimes we are the ones in the middle, and sometimes we're on the outside kicking up dirt with fierce, fierce love.
This recycled steel ornament has a gorgeous industrial-rustic vibe. And the twine gives it a perfectly imperfect farmhouse feel. Buy one for your own tree, or buy a few to share. And since each ornament comes with a special "thank you for being my elephant" card that shares the story above, you can give them to all the "elephants" in your life.
Ornament Size: 2.5" x 4"
Made from salvaged, recycled steel which means that each sheet (batch) will differ in tint and sheen. Some will be dark, some will be shiny, and some will have slight rustic wear. Each elephant is different, much like the beautiful friends in our lives.
A beautiful patina of rust can also be brought out by a minimal amount of exposure to humidity. If the rust is unwelcome you may rub grade 3 coarse steel wool over the top to remove any and/or all rust.
