Winter Tree wallpaper by olde-fashioned Winter Tree wallpaper by olde-fashioned
Another simple theme wallpaper. Last time it was autumn, this time it's winter, again for a batch of icons I have in progress. ;-) I am very pleased with how this turned out, if I do say so myself. :blush:

The image is from another stock image, and the text is a quote from a Robert Frost poem:


"the only other sound's the sweep
of easy wind and downy flake
the woods are lovely, dark and deep,
but I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep."


This deviation is not allowed to be used as stock.

Ah, so lovely--I'm putting it on my desktop right now! It will be very cheering, as it will help remind me of Christmas in the months ahead.

No, I apologize for not including it in the info! I usually do, so I'll go edit it and add it. :-) Sorry about that!

It reads:
“the only other sound’s the sweep
of easy wind and downy flake
the woods are lovely, dark and deep,
nut I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep.

I've always loved that quote. =)
This is lovely, quite minimalist at first glance, but with so much hiding in the background!
