BurBunny - it looks gorgeous, especially with the cat charm.  I can hardly wait till I get my River Garden!  The red is even better than I thought!

A few more views of the purple Roof of Heaven cover with the BorsaBella bag and Starry Night skin.  I think the light was a little better today, the color on these is perfect, at least on my monitor.

Anybody not enabled yet??

This is the first picture I have seen of the Purple that really looks purple. It is so beautiful. That may be my next cover. :)

Beautiful pics guys!

My Oberon should find its way to me this week.  But unfortunately I'm on the road without my camera so I won't be able to add any pics of my own.

Avalon, that's exactly the combination of cover and skin that I have.

Excellent taste, DD!

Oberon needs to replace the pictures on their site with yours.  Wow, that's really pretty.  For a minute, I wanted a purple ROH and that's big because I'm a red girl!  That shows the impact of your pictures!

Thanks, Lilly, very nice of you to say so.  I'm strictly a purple girl, but I've really started to notice red a lot lately.  I think red and purple share some personality traits :)

Avalon your cover and Borsa Bella bag are beautiful together!

Linda, thanks, I think so too.  We are all lucky so many talented artists have adopted the Kindle.

This is the first picture I have seen of the Purple that really looks purple. It is so beautiful. That may be my next cover. :)

You won't be disappointed.  If you get one, post a pic.  Pass it on!

Oh Avalon.....*sigh* How will I ever decide???

I do feel your pain *sigh*

Avalon, I just saw your new pictures and I have to say, you are one of the only person that posted a back picture of a wraparound cover close.  Most people will post a picture of the front and with the cover open but they never seem to give you the back view of the cover.  Thanks!

You are welcome, and I hope it helps.  What's interesting about this design is that the back cover is not a mirror image of the front, as on most of the other wrap-around styles.  And it is gorgeous!  I actually like the back better than the front.

Hadn't even thought about doing the back cover closed, as it's not what I look at, but it is so different and has its own beauty. 

If anyone wants to see River Garden's back cover only, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Me, me, did I say me! BurBunny, the red RG is one of my 2 top choices, the red Sun is the other one.  I plan to order on Friday but have not made up my mind between the 2.  I would love to see a back view of RG closed!

The Purple Roof of Heaven is delicious.  I really want it, but I probably would stop reading for awhile, I'd be too busy just happily zoning in on that cover...

This thread reminded me to order my purple ROH this afternoon.  I keep meaning to and always get distracted, but no more... its on order!  Now I need to decide on a new skin for it...

Yes,It is a beautiful combo, I have added the wolf charm to the cover and it reminds of back home in the adirondacks!!
I must confess however, all I can think about these days is the ROH in purple ,which came out the day my forest arrived :( 
I have a milestone birthday coming up and I think I'm gonna treat myself to the pocket organizer in forest to match my K1 forest cover and the K1 cover ROH in purple for his weekend wardrobe.
Then I will also need the new borsa bella travel bag and maybe the gadget bag to match( I'm kindle accessory obsessed  ;D!!)
I really do love the mountain pine cover in the saddle, if they ever decide to do that for K1, I would get it in a heartbeat, but they are probably not going to do anymore new styles for the K1, but if they do....

Just awesome, Mr. Peabody.  I feel like I'm in a peaceful, quiet forest looking at that wonderful cover.  Very calming and so beautiful!  I'm thinking of a Forest organizer in fern.  You may have just tipped the scale for me :)

You will not be disappointed, it is spectacular.  Don't know about you, but most days my Kindle is better dressed than I am :)

I agree with you on that Avalon. I wear scrubs Mon - Fri so my Kindle is definitely dressed better and on Sat I usually keep PJ's on or jeans and a T Shirt.

Not sure what it would have come with regularly, but they sent the sleeping kitty charm to help ease the pain of loss of my two kitties recently.  If I were to guess, I'd bet it comes with one of the tree charms normally.

Can't wait to hear your reaction when yours gets there today!
