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.

We will start posting SALE ITEMS Monday that will be ready for pick up the first week in January.  Get ready for some great snowmen and snow decor.  We are so excited to welcome new designs and share them all with you.  Again, these orders will not be available until after Christmas (due to all of the Christmas orders that need done ASAP)

Hey Everyone!  
It is 10:30 at night and I am just sitting down to post today's post.  What a crazy busy day working and putting up with this silly cold that I got from my sweetie!  I think he must have been breathing on me while we were sleeping.  :)

Because it is almost the end of Monday and almost the beginning of Tuesday, we are going to post two SALE ITEMS and count it for both days!  Great idea huh?  (Let's hope this works).  We are making these at our craft night on Thursday, but many of you have inquired about purchasing these finished because you are unable to attend the class.  Here is your chance!!!

Welcome to ~Make Your House A Home~ where we share fun ideas that ~Make Our House A Home~  I absolutely love putting up Christmas Tree's in all of our bedrooms.  Here are some pictures of the tree we put up in Chloee's room.  It was very in-expensive and really fun for Chloee and I.  We did everything together and had a blast. (It's all about the memories)
This is a picture of a breast cancer ribbon a dear friend of mine made for me and we just had to add it to our tree! ( Thanks Julia - :)  I purchased a box of  48 pink and purple ornaments at Wal-mart for a great price.  I added black wire hangers onto each one and wow,  we sure filled up her tree.  

 Chloee is a big fan of Build A Bear (Ok, so am I).  She has been collecting them for years, so we always incorporate them into her holiday decorations.  We wrapped a darling crocheted afghan (that Eric's mom made for her years ago) around the base of the tree for the tree skirt.  Then we placed her  Build A Bear friends around the bottom of the tree!  Super Cute huh?
 We sure love having a Pink Filled Tree.

 Another close up of the breast cancer ribbon 

 Another Fun bunny from Build A Bear - 

 Another small build a bear that we added onto the tree.  
 If you look close to this picture, you can see the pink candy canes.  We bought some plastic red and white candy cane ornaments at the dollar store and wrapped them in pink yarn.  It took Chloee and I about an hour and we filled her tree with them.  Again, another super easy, in-expensive idea.  The most important part is we did it together.  
 One more cute cuddly friend added to the tree. 
  Thanks for spending another fun Saturday with us.  Have a wonderful weekend and we will see you back here on Monday!!!
