Temple Prints Make Me Cry

Most of the time, when a customer inquires about a Temple print, she (or he, but mostly she) does so via email.  This morning, however, I got a phone call from a lovely older gentleman from Utah who wanted to purchase a framed Temple print for his son, who had served his mission here long ago.  After talking specifics about prints and frames and such, we talked about Utah and the weather, and this and that.  I really liked this very kind man and it was so nice talking to him.  I don't know why, but talking to this man brought me such a feeling of peace.  I am literally sitting here bawling right now and wanting very badly to get myself to the Temple and bask in the serenity and beauty within.  It's been a long time.  Far too long.

This is the print he wants, in case you were wondering, and just for the sake of statistics, when a woman orders, she usually (usually, but not always!) orders "Glowing" (the tall, black and white, very dramatic print), and men usually order the antiqued (below).  So now you know!

That's interesting. Danjee bought me a picture of the temple a few years ago for Christmas. There were two different prints in the same style frame. I had seen the picture of the one of the temple taken from the front where the reflection pool is. I wanted it!!! I told him and he bought the antiqued one from the view of the desert garden. You were absolutely accurate in your stat!!! (as far as the Moser's go anyway) :-)

That is SO interesting to me! I have seen it consistently in my sales! Even Todd prefers the desert garden and I prefer "Glowing." Too funny!
