I purchased this vase at my favorite home decor store Parsons. They have great vases for my paintings. I wanted this to have the feel of Simplicity and Tranquillity. Every time I think of the name Serenity I think of the Seinfeld episode "Serenity Now." It always brings a smile to my face. I wish Seinfeld was still on prime time, but I guess I will just have to enjoy the repeats.
