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.

Saturday, January 28th
Good Morning - the Sunshine is BEAUTIFUL this morning!! Welcome to our ~Make Your House A Home~ Saturday post. I have a fun idea to share with you that is very in-expensive, quick and easy. I wanted a little change in our kitchen, so I purchased some glass jars for the ingredients we use when baking. Before I went to the store, I made a list of all the different ingredients I had so I would know which sizes I needed to purchase. Because I "LOVE" Roosters, I printed some great rooster pictures onto some "Lazertran Inkjet Waterslide Decal Paper" (Coolest stuff ever, if you would like more info about it, let me know!) I transferred the pictures onto the glass jars.

The jars below have Pasta, Popcorn and the one on the left has Chocolate Chips. Chloee has always called them "Choppit Chips" so that is how I cut the vinyl for that jar..... Choppit Chips. It personalized it for our home and the kids got a kick out of it, especially Chloee!


I found a stylish font that fit the look of my kitchen and cut all the different labels from black vinyl. It took a few minutes to place the rooster pictures and vinyl onto the jars and Walaaaaa.... Take a peak at these large containers I used for our Brown Sugar, Sugar and Oats.



I purchased a larger container for the flour and placed a large Rooster picture on this one. I realy love the way they turned out.



I purchased small matching containers for the Soda, Powder, Pepper and Salt. After we brought these home, we decided we wanted the smaller ones for the other spices we use.



Remember.... We can cut the vinyl for you if you decide to try this fun idea in your kitchen. Thank you for joining us today and we will see you back here on Monday for a new drawing winner, a new drawing item and of course..... Another SALE Item. ~Enjoy Your Weekend~ Mandy

"Better late than never." I figure it is still Saturday, so here is our ~Make Your House A Home~ entry. The kids and I spent the day cleaning, doing laundry, baking and more cleaning, while Eric worked in the shop on all of your orders!! I absolutely love to sit down at night when the house is clean, laundry is put away, the smell of fresh bread is lingering and our bellies are full. What a blessing. I had the opportunity to meet a dear friend a couple years ago. I hope she doesn't mind if I share her story. As a young mom she had a stroke which left the right side of her body somewhat immoveable. I was at her home one day and noticed the effort she had to put forth just to vacuum or wash dishes. The day I saw how hard this was for her was the day I realized how easy it was for me to clean my home, to do our laundry or to bake for my family. Before that day, it was easy for me to look at these tasks as a burden sometimes, but I learned that I shouldn't. We should be grateful we can offer these services to the ones we love... Thank you for being such a great example Melissa, I love You!!


One of my FAVORITE Decorations in our home is the pictures of our kids. I love looking at them and being reminded of all the different ages they have been. I love remembering the funny things they have done or silly things they have said. We think of the saying "My Joy Is Full...." when Eric and I think of our kids. I have displayed their pictures in different ways in our over the years and would love to share those ways with you.....


This picture of my kids is my latest creation. I had 11X14 pictures printed with a matte finish. I chalked the edges to give them that rustic look. We cut boards, painted them black and distressed the edges. I used spray adhesive to glue the pictures to the board. I put each of their names across the bottom in vinyl. I used our furniture grade clear coat over the top of the vinyl and pictures. They turned out awesome. I make them for my hall, but decided I wanted to look at them every day so I have them displayed on easels on my piano in the front room.


These are pictures of my kids when they were younger. I LOVE looking at them. I have them displayed in my bathroom in frames that Eric made for me years ago. Most of our frames are black and antique white because every picture looks good with those colors.



These are also a fun way to display pictures. They can be hung on the wall horizontally, but I LOVE displaying them vertically on the floor up against a wall. I used our sweet annie green and black for these frames. We distressed the edges and tada!



Another idea is placing several frames together on wall.





Remember, we offer a great assortment of frames and would love to help you display your family pictures. Many different sizes and styles are available. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and make sure you check back on Monday for our next sale item.




We LOVE to see other peoples homes...... If any of you would like to share ideas you have used in your homes, please send us descriptions and pictures to ontheavenuelogan@gmail.com We would love to share your ideas with our blog followers as well!

Saturday - January 14th - This entry is ~Make Your House A Home~. Many of you have asked us about different decorating ideas and what you can do in your homes, so we thought we would start a Saturday segment called.... ~Make Your House A Home~ We will be showing you different displays we have used to decorated our home and other homes. I LOVE to see other peoples homes...... If any of you would like to share ideas you have used in your homes, please send us descriptions and pictures to ontheavenuelogan@gmail.com We would love to share your ideas with our blog followers as well!


The Bed - As you will probably notice, I have a lot of Red in My home. I love the color Red. I have red walls in my kitchen and bathroom. So it was no surprise when I told Eric I wanted to paint our bed (that he built me years ago) red and that I wanted large dresser nightstands red also. It was so much fun designing our bedroom furniture when he finished everything and moved it into our room... I wanted to cry. I LOVE my bedroom set.



Eric built me this bed years ago for Valentine's Day. I was banned from the shop for a full day. I knew he was up to something, but was absolutely thrilled when he brought this in. It was one of the first pieces he built for me and I LOVE IT!!! It was Antique White to begin with and then we re-sprayed it this Bing Cherry Red.....

The Night Stands/Dressers - When I gave Eric the measurements for these, he thought they would be too big. But we really needed the storage and I Love the big bulky look. When we moved them into our room, they were perfect! This looks like we have nine drawers, but there are only three. I wanted deep drawers for all of my treasures - (as if I have any treasures....) However, this would be a perfect place for a Chocolate Stash!



Decor On Top Of The Nightstands

The above pictures shows how I have decorated the two nightstands by our bed. Mine has the little fireplace heater. Eric gave this to me for Christmas. It heats our room great and the look of the fire is beautiful. It was meant to go on the floor, but it heats our room better upon my nightstand. I put one of our Wreath Frames on Eric's nightstand with the Family wording and a small statue that has a mom and daughter. It says... Count Your Blessings. I am sure he would rather something more "MANLY" on his nightstand, but he just lets me do my thing. I am very grateful he is like that.

Accent Piece Of Furniture - This was the first piece of furniture Eric built me. The top lifts up and it open for storage. When we sprayed the nightstands and bed, we added this too. I have decorated with some rustic stacking boxes, berries, a couple twig balls and this Rooster. I also have a fabric runner on both nightstands and this piece. These runners were very popular in our store and I always grabbed one when she brought in a new batch. Thanks again Linda!


A few years ago Eric went out of town for the weekend. The minute he pulled out, I ran to Lowe's. I purchased all the trim you see here on the walls. I came home (never doing this before) and started nailing all the trim on the walls. My dear friend (Anjanette) came to my home and helped me texture the walls throughout our house. I painted very neutral colors in our room because I knew the furniture would be red with the black glaze. I was tickled at the way it turned out.


Thanks for spending part of your day touring a little bit of our home. Check back each Saturday as we share more of what ~Makes our House a Home~

Something Great For Breakfast!


I just wanted to share a YUMMY recipe we had for Breakfast on Saturday morning and then Monday night for dinner. I watched Paula Dean's son's make something similar and I thought "I Can Make That". So here goes - Super Easy~ Stuffed French Toast -Take two pieces of regular bread - we love white. Spread Strawberry cream cheese on two different slices. Slice Banana's onto one of the pieces of bread on top of the cream cheese. Place both pieces of bread together - cream cheese together. Dip into egg mixture - we mixed vanilla into eggs. Place on a griddle and cook like regular french toast. It is DELICIOUS and super easy. This would be really fun for Breakfast on Valentine's Day. It really doesn't take long at all. Enjoy!!

This entry is ~Make Your House A Home~. Many of you have asked us about different decorating ideas and what you can do in your homes, so we thought we would start a Saturday segment called.... ~Make Your House A Home~ We will be showing you different displays we have used to decorated our home and other homes. I LOVE to see other peoples homes...... If any of you would like to share ideas you have used in your homes, please send us descriptions and pictures to ontheavenuelogan@gmail.com We would love to share your ideas with our blog followers as well!

Eric and I bought a VERY OLD home several years ago and have spent a lot of time re-modeling!! Our plans were to stay in our home for a couple years, fix it up, flip it and move.... But we absolutely love our home and where we live. There is no place better~

This is a Built In Hutch that is original to the house. We have painted it and put new knobs on each drawer and door. It has a beautiful mirror with beveled edges right above the drawers on the lower part. I love to put Christmas lights in front of the mirror year round. It reflects the light - and I love lights!! I am a big fan of Roosters (Eric likes the real ones and I like the fake ones - SMILE) I leave my rooster plates in the top part of the hutch which have a lot of the colors I used for the different Holidays. This is a wonderful place to decorate for the holidays! I LOVE This Hutch!!!


Eric just built this Mantel for me for Christmas. I wanted a beautiful piece for the end of my hall, but didn't want it too far off the wall. I have tried tables and benches before, but absolutely know this is the piece for this place in my home. I have placed a Family Proclamation, a small clock, a candle stick w/candle and a Twig and Ivy garland on top.


This is one of my favorite furniture pieces. I found this Old Rocking Chair at a thrift store for $20.00 bucks. Perfect condition and ready to be painted. I sprayed it with our Furniture Grade Black paint, distressed the edges and clear coated it. I love decorating it for the seasons with pillows, quilts and more. Everytime I decorate it, Eric asks me how he is going to sit in it... He honestly asks me this Everytime!! I just tell him he can't... So sorry!! I absolutely LOVE taking old furniture and making something great from it.



This is a little nook in our Bathroom (yes, I said Bathroom, not one of our bathrooms.) As for now, we only have one bathroom, but hey it could be worse right? I was raised in a cute little home with 6 other brothers and sisters. That is a total of 9 in our family and we all shared one bathroom. I figure (for now) my little family of 5 is doing just fine. (I may disagree with myself Sunday morning before church, but for now, we are great!) I have tried different things in this little nook from benches to tables and even a bakers rack. I finally asked Eric to build me this hutch. It has great storage in the bottom and the top half is perfect for decorating. A friend of mine was in our bathroom once and said.... "You even decorate your bathroom?" Yep, I love to decorate every square inch of my house....




Thanks for spending part of your day touring a little bit of our home. Check back each Saturday as we share more of what ~Makes our House a Home~
