Wow what a nice set! Nice cover! I loved navy blue! Where did you get it? I must have one too! It goes pretty well with you bag! Great picks!

Love the combination of colors, patterns and textures, and your attention to detail with the matching starfish and sunface charms adds to the perfection!
Gorgeous combo, jesspark :)

Thank you so much, Christina! ;D

Coming across the sea star charm was pure luck: I was going through my jewelry box and found a charm bracelet with tons of fish, seashells, and sea stars dangling from it, and you can't even tell that I removed one. The sun charm came with my cover, courtesy of Oberon; I preferred the sea star going on the cover itself, but I knew the moment I ordered my Borsa Bella bag that I'd put my sun charm on one of the bag's zippers. =)

The only thing left to get now? A Hokusai Wave card holder to use as a wallet! (It doesn't have to do directly with the Kindle, so I still consider my combo complete without it.) Right now, I use a metal cigarette case to hold my driver's license and other IDs, but I don't want to keep it in the Borsa Bella bag for fear that the sharp corners would tear the fabric. The Oberon card holder would be a perfect replacement, though -- and, of course, it would match my Kindle cover!

Thanks, Kind, koolmnbv, and kjn33! :D

I really love my Hokusai Wave design, kjn; I think it's gorgeous, and I love navy blue. I've been really happy with it. I might be in some trouble when Oberon introduces their lighter, sky/peacock blue later this year, though -- as much as I love the navy, I imagine the intricate details would show up better with a lighter color, so I might have to spring for something else (a journal, maaaybe a second cover) if they offer Hokusai Wave in the new blue. I'd also love to see their Seaside design in sky/peacock blue, too, though... oh, decisions!

At least I know the "new blue" would probably still go nicely with my Borsa Bella bag (although not quite as well as the navy). ;D

I love, love, LOVE your combo! Great bag! Navy is my fave color too...and I'm awaiting the Navy butterfly. She should arrive on Tuesday. Oh and how did I miss that new blue color?!?!?!?  It's beautiful, and I may have to get a winter cover, lol. Maybe they'll add more designs too. Well, I hope they do anyway.

Beautiful!  I love the different shades of blue.  If I do get an Oberon cover, it will probably be a blue shade.

Great Combo!  I have the Hokusai Wave cover too and it's nice to see it further accessorized with the BB bag and charms.

Thank you for the kind words, everyone! Where's that "aww, shucks" smiley when you need it? ;)

Navy is just such a great color: as elegant as black, but a little livelier. As a young'n, both my junior and senior prom dresses were navy; when I got married, my bridesmaids' and junior bridesmaid's dresses were navy, as well. I'd love to see your butterfly cover in navy when it arrives! :D

Even with my longstanding love of navy, though, that new blue is awwwfully tempting... besides navy, cerulean blue is my favorite color, and that shade comes pretty close. I just don't know if I would get a second Hokusai Wave (since I do love it so much) or spring for Seaside in the new blue! It makes me want to go diving for more megalodon teeth -- if I find a really good one, I could sell it and get as many Oberon covers as I'd like! ;D ...Actually, scratch that; if I had an excess of cash, I'd probably just commission of batch of my dream Oberon cover. Le sigh!
