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, September 22nd
Hey Everyone!  It is Saturday evening and I am just getting to this post.  Welcome to 
~Make Your House A Home~ 
where we share fun ideas that ~Make Our House A Home~  I absolutely love wood furniture.  Absolutely love it!!  I remember when I was in 6th grading walking down the hall by the wood shop.  I saw this beautiful wood box and just had to make it.  So I signed up for the woods class that was offered to 7th graders.  I kept that box until a couple years ago, when I realized it would look better in the fire pit than in my home (LOL).  My favorite kind of wood furniture is the kind of furniture we make.  Old, Rustic, Colorful  & Chunky with lots of character.  Pinterest has been life changing for me. (should I admit that?)  I am always looking for rustic pieces of furniture on there and I always find pieces that I love.  Here are a few of my favorite pieces.....

Love the Antique Gold Color and the cute wreaths........

primitive cupboard

My friend Laura pinned this piece and I LOVE IT!!!  I would love to have Eric build me something like this, but I'm not sure where I would put it!!!
LOVE THIS SWEET COUNTRY CABINET
Beautiful Kitchen Table -
I Love the latte shelf on the bottom!!
kitchen island
The chicken wire on this piece is super fun!
Rustic - Love It!
You will LOVE this site!!! It's called Primitive Souls and has lots of neat ideas on how to build your own stuff that looks old and antiquey!
So Many Drawers~

Love the Antique White With Black Hardware~

 Friday "Freebies", September 21st
Good Morning and HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!  Can't you just feel the weekend energy?!  Remember our Friday's are super fun around here.  We always offer a Freebie when you purchase a Friday's SALE ITEM. Great idea huh???    Before we show you today's SALE ITEM and Freebie.... 

We want to share some information about a great family I was recently told about!  As most of you know, we lost a dear brother in law & uncle six weeks ago to Melanoma Cancer.  (sniff, sniff).  I was diagnosed with breast cancer almost six months ago, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer almost exactly one year before I was and a dear friend of mine is going though some pretty tough treatment right now as she has battled with colon cancer.  I have a very tender spot in my heart for those who are fighting the cancer battle and for those sweet families who are there to support and love their family members as they struggle with this disease.  We received so many blessings and prayers during this really hard time in our lives and continue to watch miracles happen.  

Another wonderful family is fighting the same cancer battle I watched my sister and her sweet husband fight.  Because I know prayers and support make a world of difference, we wanted to share their story with all of you and ask for your prayers and any other assistance you may be able to offer them. 

The Kailing Family
(Sorry the picture is a little blurry, we took it from their facebook page)
0SC0011.jpg
 Live da Life is a charitable fundraiser for the Kailing family. Mark Kailing, who has been battling Sarcoma cancer since Feb 2010, has been an inspiration to his family, friends and community. The theme "Live da Life!" is a common phrase with the Kailings. Mark and LaDena are an inspiration to all who know them. Now we want to give back! Please join us as we celebrate life and all it has to offer with a Fun Run and Auction fundraiser! They are blessed with five children.  The first three were adopted and then the they were blessed with two darling girls of their own.  Mark has been so strong and even in some of his sick times he still continues to try to work and support his family.  Ladena has become a Life Coach in the past year and helps so many in our community.
 Thank You for all Your Support!!

Good Morning Everyone!!  Welcome to another post here at our ~On The Avenue~ Blog.  Whew, I just got back from an 8 mile run and I am feeling fantastic!!!  Bahahahahaha, just kidding!!!!  I actually just drove my daughter to school, which is only a block away.  I know, pathetic! However, I have a super busy schedule today and I knew driving her would save me 10 minutes.  Actually, I probably would have run into friends while walking and stopping to chat is always a blast, so I probably saved myself at least 45 minutes. :)  

We have another FUN SALE ITEM today?  This

On Sale for $25.00
This is a fantastic size because the large size calendars fit perfectly.  The lower shelf is great for pencils or other small items. 
If you don't want to display a calendar on this, hang a wreath and add a pillow on the shelf.
These are FANTASTIC Christmas gifts.  (hint, hint)

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.

Today's SALE ITEM is this
 Super Cute Happy Halloween Spider Door Hanger
(whew, that was a long name)
He is 16" Tall x 12" Wide
(which does not include the wire legs)
He is perfect for wishing your friends and neighbors a Happy Halloween.

Wow, typing September 11th is absolutely mind boggling!  I will never forget the day our towers fell.  I was in my kitchen taking care of my babies when Eric called and told me to turn on the TV.  I don't think my eyes left our TV for days and I saved all the newspapers for a week after.  To be honest with you, I didn't know much about terrorists at that time, boy have I learned a lot since then.  I read a book called "Let's Roll" which was about the plane that went down in the Pennsylvania Field.  It was amazing to read.  Although a horrible tragedy happened that day, so did wonderful miracles.  It was a life changing event for everyone who was involved and who watched.  Our thoughts are with all of those who were affected by this horrible event.  We pray that comfort will be with those who face today with a heavy heart.

We have another fun SALE ITEM today.
