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, 17 years later, sharing our creations and designs with friends everywhere.

Monday, September 17th
Happy New Week everyone.  The laundry is going, dishes just finished washing in the dishwasher, vacuuming is done, beds made, the kids are at school, Eric is at work and I am just sitting down to write today's blog entry. (whew)  I just happen to be sipping a warm mug of hot chocolate right now.  Isn't Fall Fantastic???  A good friend of mine gave us a "Coco-motion" Hot Chocolate Maker several years ago for Christmas and it is our FAVORITE thing. (Thanks Anne!) It comes out as soon as the mornings are chilly and doesn't get put away until the warm weather is back.  You just add a little hot chocolate mix and water and push the start button.  It mixes everything together and heats it to a steaming temperature.  YUMMY!!!  
My kiddos and Eric Love Hot Chocolate in the morning.....  
As I was sitting in church yesterday, my friend asked me where my "Make Your House A Home" Entry was.    I admitted to her, I was just too busy this weekend.  What did I do???  Had a girls sleep over at my mom's house with my Chloee, my sister Melanie and her daughter Taya!! (and of course my mom was there too - and dad).  It was one of those times, I needed to walk away from work and enjoy being with some of my favorite people!!  One thing I realized is that I am getting much older and at 9:30 I was already tired.  Thankgoodness, Melanie is still young and talked us into playing games because that is when the fun began.  Yahtzee at 11:00 at night (when you are my age) gets really funny and we laughed ourselves silly.  Laughter is so AWESOME!!!  Thanks for the fun night girls and for keeping me from getting my work done.   :)
For any of you who have placed orders and are waiting for us, thank you for your patience.  We have never had so many orders come in at once and we are working fast and furious to get everything done.  Being busy is a GREAT thing, but I sure hate the feeling of "Not Being On Top Of Things"  We will continue working hard and let you know as soon as your order(s) are ready to go.
