What a gorgeous vase. I love it and it fits in with my decor just as I planned. The one thing that surprised me was how lightweight it is. I just hadn't bought a bamboo product before and I was expecting it to be heavier since it is made of wood. However, putting sand in the bottom made it more than stable. Overstock was supposed to include the sand packet with the vase but mine was not in the box. All I can say is, it is beautiful and depicted on the site just as it is!! Now if they could bring the Gold Tall Vase back, I would be even more pleased. Thanks Overstock.
