Since I did sort-of xmas-y beads, today I'm doing sort an xmas-y wrapped gift (since it was photographed in early January, it was a tad on the late side for xmas!)
I tilted the gift up, because the first photo (shown below) was kinda boring. I've also come to the conclusion that this manual focus lens is much easier to use mounted on a tripod, with liveview.
I do like the unusual shape of the elongated green beads. The crimped gold ribbon was probably from Page—I love it, and re-used it a number of times, because I love the texture.
