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: (winter tree)
My Christmas batch this year is hopefully something everyone will like; I didn't have as much time as I had hoped, but oh well.

Forty icons of various stock trees and chickadees, nearly all with the theme of winter. I think trees are gorgeous and chickadees are adorable, and there is also a winter tree wallpaper with a Robert Frost poem on it for those of you who want something slightly festive and yet not overtly so. ;-)

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

Merry Christmas everyone! )
olde_fashioned: (baby prayers)
At the suggestion of one of my friends, a batch of icons dedicated to innocent (and adorable!) babies and children. So many people regard them as a burden, a hindrance, something to be avoided at all costs, when in truth children are a blessing from God. Besides -- who can possibly resist such utter cuteness? ;-)

olde_fashioned: (Waterhouse -- The Lady of Shalott)
Thirty stock icons all with the theme of Autumn, because it's almost that time of year again, and I know someone who loves fall as much as I do. ;-) Hands down the most beautiful of the four seasons, I had a lot of fun scouting for images and working with such vibrant colors. :-) I also made up a coordinating wallpaper just because.

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

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!

Having become so fond of the gorgeous images accompanying
THIS delightful quiz, I simply couldn't resist iconing them for the pleasure of others as well of myself. :-) Hopefully all the different pictures for the quiz are represented here! (I tried to get them all). And as always, my icons are not bases, please credit/comment if taking, and enjoy!

olde_fashioned: (last rose of summer)
This is kind of killing two birds with one stone, since the First Day of Spring was only yesterday, and I'm getting to share some of my [livejournal.com profile] floral_icontest entries. Subjects range from poppies to snowdrops, to bees to clovers, with a couple things inbetween. ;-)

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

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: (horse)
I decided to try my hand at making icons from stock photographs. For the most part they are either autumn or winter, but there are some of rain and a few other things as well. ;-)
