Welcome To On The Avenue Home Decor & Gifts. Years ago my husband and I bought our first home. It was a very old home and needed a lot of tender love and care. I had the vision of what I wanted and my husband was able to help me bring it to life. As we began building and creating items for our home, we had another idea..... What if we started our own business and offered our creations to others who share the same love and passion for decorating as we do. Here we are, 15 years later, sharing our creations and designs with friends everywhere.

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!!
So, I'm feeling a little under the weather today.  Woke up to a sinus headache, dizziness (which is my least favorite cold symptom) and I'm really tired.  DANG!!!  My boys have felt yucky over the past week and they must have been breathing on me.  Thank goodness for a little DayQuil and Ibuprofen.  Hopefully that will continue to take the edge off and allow me to keep going today.  Eric is so sweet and always tell me to relax, take a nap, take a day off..... but trying to catch up the next day is so much worse for me.  So the laundry is still running, dishes have been done and then I am going to bed early tonight!!!

What a super busy day.  I kind of wish it was 9:00 p.m. and then I could justify going to bed and watching a movie or something.....  but it isn't.   I guess I will get some work done.  We did have a great weekend and WooHoo for our Denver Broncos.  We LOVE when they win.  

I absolutely LOVE Today's SALE Item....
I love decorating my kitchen table!!  Now that we have moved to our new home we always eat at our bar, but in our last home our only eating option was our kitchen table.  I got tired of constantly moving the decorations off the table, so I designed these simple ~Table Boxes~.  All I had to do was pick up the box and move it before we ate and put the box back when we were done!!  

~Table Box~
24" x 24" Over All Dimensions
  The edges are 4" Tall and we have placed bead board in the base.  This box is available in several colors - Black, Antique White, Antique Gold, Bing Cherry Red, Avocado Green and Burnt Umber Brown and the edges are distressed.  We are also offering it unfinished for any of those who would like to paint it your own unique color. 
Finished Box  
On Sale - $33.00 


Unfinished Box
 On Sale - $28.00


To place an order for today's Table Box, please email us at ontheavenuelogan@gmail.com or use the BUY NOW option above.  The BUY NOW option above allows you to order and pay for this item using your Paypal Account or a credit/debit card.  Shipping is available on this item and will be calculated on an individual basis and billed separately through Paypal.

These would be a Super Fun Christmas Present.....
Start thinking ahead..

We have a winner from last week's drawing.
(remember our cute Jack-O-Lantern?)
