Well, since the last post, I have been busy on ebay! Here are some pictures of the gang. As I was arranging them on the mantle, I realized that two of the ones I've been using as ornaments did not originally come with ribbon hangers. I think I must have put the cord on them somewhere along the trail (although I couldn't say so for sure) so yesterday I removed it. That explains why they never hung nicely.
After finally getting things set up on the mantle and photographing the results, I bought another lion on ebay! The price was right and he was sitting instead of standing.
Also, I'm not sure if it shows up in the pictures, but I have 2 of the same elephant. Now I check before placing a bid!
