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.

Thursday Already?????
Isn't It Still Wednesday???
Where did yesterday go???  Last night (or early this morning) as I was getting ready for bed,I thought to myself "That was a LONG Hard Working Day".  What a super busy day!  I didn't even make it to this blog, but here we are today!!!  I have been feeling like I just can't accomplish everything in front of me and then I read something today and this encouraged me to move forward with a happy heart (and tired eyes) and everything will get accomplished.  
(Hiring a house keeper would probably help too - LOL)

Another Beautiful Snowy Day!!!

I actually woke up really tired and a little gloomy because we haven't seen the sun (without inversion air) for so long.  I really think it starts to wear on a person after a period of time.  Chloee and I decided to walk her to school today rather than drive......  Not something we would usually do while it is snowing!  I am SOOOO glad we walked.  It was so beautiful and peaceful outside.  Other than the sound of cars driving by, it was totally peaceful.  The snow is falling, the air was so fresh and my cheeks even got a little rosy from the cold air.  It really lifted my spirit and Chloee and I had a great conversation as we walked.  I am always a little sad when I leave here there..... we just have so much fun together.  Eric calls her "Mini Mandy" which fits her quite well.  We are just two peas in a pod.  
Isn't this a great picture?  It is actually only a great picture because we did get this four wheeler un-stuck.  My Kylan was having a great time out in this snow yesterday.  Ghavan and I sat in the house laughing and wondering how he was going to get it out.  I'm not sure how he did, but it isn't there anymore.  
Oh, the fun of Winter!

Good Morning and WooHoo for Monday!
We had a really long night at our house.  That horrible Stomach flu that everyone has been talking about finally hit our house.  My poor little Chloee spend the night throwing up.  She was so sick and yet so sweet.  She apologized that I had to wash her blanket and just keeps thanking me for taking care of her.   What a sweet heart.  She has managed to keep some food down for the past couple hours, so I am hoping she is over the yucky part.  

On the bright side of things - NO MORE INVERSION!  That is a big WooHoo!!  We can actually see our beautiful mountains today.  

Not to mention the Several Inches of snow that fell yesterday.  We were sitting in church and Eric got a Storm Warning on his phone.  Boy, they weren't kidding.  It was an awesome snow storm.  I can say that because we were in our Warm Home, All Together & Safe and Eating Delicious Food.  

Today's SALE ITEM is another favorite.  I have a few of them in my home at this very moment.

What another crazy day of Weather.  An Ice Storm????  It is simply Crazy!  Eric left for school today around 6:00.  He made it about 15 minutes into his commute and then sat still in the canyon for over two hours.  The roads were icy and an accident had happened right in front of him, so traffic was at a stand still.  This picture was posted on Facebook of an accident in the Salt Lake Area I believe.  So Crazy!

Good Morning Again~
It gets tough thinking of things to write everyday.  We don't live a super exciting life and I find myself writing a lot of the same things everyday.  Today is Just another normal day here at our house.  Up early getting the kids out the door for school.  It is really hard sending my boys out the door when it is dark and yucky outside, but they are tough boys and the bus stop is only across the street.  (I know, across the street?  I had to walk for miles uphill both ways to get to my bus stop - LOL)  I find myself doing the same routine everyday.  Up early, taking care of the kids, cleaning, laundry, more cleaning, errands and then work, work, work.  There are some days I get really sick of this routine and then I remind myself how blessed I am that I am physically able to take care of my family and home.  It was only 8 months ago that I couldn't even wipe my counter tops off and I am very blessed to be back to normal and on the run.  (Dang Breast Cancer)

Enough of this jibber jabber - how about another

Happy Monday Morning Everyone! 
Over the weekend, we actually saw the sunshine and it was beautiful.  I found myself wanting to re-decorate the porch and make it more welcoming.  Unfortunately, the temperature is still below zero which kind of takes away from the fun of being outside.  However, I did add one simple item to the porch.......
And I LOVE It!!!
