olde_fashioned: (cowboy -- book cover roundup)
In honour of the July 4th...what, I ask you, is more intrisically American than cowboys and the Wild West? ;-D Another one of my romantic and old-fashioned propensities, I think most of us love a good western every now and then, and the timeless appeal of the masculine man with an independant spirit, skill in his craft, and an unswerving sense of morality, justice, and loyalty is undeniable, even to our modern sensibilities...perhaps even more so. ;-)

The majority of these are various stock images of men in cowboy hats on horseback, but towards the end there are several paintings by famous western artists as well, such greats as Remington, Eakins, and Russell. They are a bit older, but not too terribly bad so as not to be posted, LOL.

As always, never alter my graphics, comment, credit, and enjoy!

just remember the Red River Valley // and the one that has loved you so true )
olde_fashioned: (Scotland -- take me home)
I've rounded up a few icons that I've been making on and off for a while now, all with the theme of Scotland. ;-) Scottish castles, scenery, thistles, and a few Scottish paintings, including the very famous Scotland Forever! by Elizabeth Thompson. I've also included love banners and a wallpaper for those of you who love Scotland as much as I do. :-) I've been really in a Scottish mood due to reading and watching Kidnapped, lol.

As ever, my icons are not bases, please credit/comment if taking, and enjoy!

Scotland the Brave )
olde_fashioned: (green -- Irish Brigade flag)
In honour of Saint Patrick's Day, a dozen stock icons of the Irish cliffs, castles, and countryside. I love the color green and all things Irish, so naturally I enjoy March 17th very much! ;-D I've also included a love banner for those of you who love Ireland as much as I do. :-)

As ever, my icons are not bases, please credit/comment if taking, and enjoy!

I will dye my petticoats, I'll dye them red... )
olde_fashioned: (redhead -- Lord Frederick Leighton)
Here are some icons I've made using the lovely rural countryside of America, made for [livejournal.com profile] skye_lark, and some paintings of redheaded women which were so beautiful I just had to make a few! They are mostly textless this time, as I didn't think they needed any "help" to make them beautiful. ;-) As always, for the most part the title of the painting of all the art icons has been preserved in the URL, for the curious. ;-)

Comment, credit, and enjoy!

Blondes may have more fun, but redheads are remembered! )
