We have very creative staff members on our team. Today, I would like to introduce you to Lenore Angela who creates beautiful displays with our products throughout the Market and the Estate Winery to enhance your shopping experience.
Two years ago, we celebrated our 40th anniversary of farming and Sandra Lee our winemaker crafted a beautiful raspberry sparkling wine to mark the occasion (which by the way, won a Double Gold in the 2015 All Canadian Wine Championships).
Knowing Lenore's talent as an artist, illustrator and author, we knew she would be able to capture the intricate details necessary for the belt buckle label we had in mind for this special wine.
Our sparkling wines wear their belt buckles proudly!
Come in, saddle up, have a taste and a look at the intricate berry designs and feel the textures of the raised logo, 40th and the rope that circles the buckle.
Lenore has a beautiful website and blog called Rare Rabbits lenoreangela.blogspot.ca
The photos and words shared below come from her blog about the display she created for The Christmas Wish - a New York Times and Krause Berry Farms Bestseller!
It's a wonderful read, that we know you will enjoy.
Anja Comes to Krause Berry Farms, by Lenore Angela
My coworker, Maureen and I created this fun display for the market at Krause Berry Farms. And having so many unique products to work with, we had a ball designing it.
These items tell a charming story about Anja, a sweet little girl with a Christmas wish.
There's adorable books, decorations and linens,
with something for everyone's Christmas beginnin's.
Mugs filled with treats, I pick cocoa.
Made candlelier lighting. Real candles?
There's rugs for your tootsies in gay, cheery patterns.
And functional aprons to ward off the splatterns.
Many bells, countless stars keep the gaiety bright,
ready to fasten on a cold winter's night.
We have mittens and booties to hang near your hat.
Look! Nordic-style teapots to cherish, beat that!
You can never go wrong with a cute wooden sign.
And jingle bell garlands will all do just fine!
Warm stuffies to love make the children so happy.
Before they go down for their afternoon nappy.
Pretty napkins to dab cocoa drips from your chin,
And bells for your reindeer! She said with a grin.
Of course bedtime stories and soft friends to cuddle.
Make it all dreamy,
For your holiday huddle!
Come enjoy these experiences.
Hopefully you will have a chance to meet Lenore in person!
