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.

Hey Everyone!  I sure hope you are all having a great Wednesday!  We are busy at work getting ready for our ~Make It With Mandy~ Craft Class tomorrow night.  A Big thanks to everyone who signed up and we can't wait to see you there!  

We have a New Everyday Decor Item On Sale Today.  I absolutely LOVE this Family Rules Sign.  I have it displayed in front of our Mantel in our hallway.  I just discovered this font and love it.  I actually stippled the letters on giving it that same rustic look as the "Welcome To our Porch" and "Family" Sign.  After stippling it, we sand over the words and edges which makes it look fantastic!!
This sign is 36" Tall x 16" Wide which is a large sign.  Perfect for any display.  This sign is available in Bing Cherry Red with the white writing or Black with the white writing.

Good Morning Friends. 
I just have to say I am so grateful for all the blessings that I have.  I am tremendously blessed and am so grateful for the little things in life that keep things in perspective.  

When I think of Spring I have fond memories of flying kites in the field behind the home I was raised.  There are many homes built in that field now, but back then it seemed HUGE and thank goodness there were no power lines for quite a distance.  It was the perfect field for flying a kite!  I have one memory in particular that has never left me.  My older brother and I were flying our kites in that awesome field one spring day.  For some crazy reason, my brother asked me to hold his kite.  If I remember right, it was quite a ways up toward the sky.  I don't remember why he asked me to hold his kite, but knowing how great my big brother is, he was probably trying to get my kite up in the air for me.  Suddenly his kite flew out of my hand.  I have no idea how this happened, but I remember us chasing the string of his kite.  I felt horrible and I am sure he did too!!  Ahhhhh, the memories of being kids. 

So..... in honor of flying kites~

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!  
I wanted to share something my sweet cousin (Michelle) posted on her Facebook today.  It was perfectly said......

"I have many people in my life who have seen hardship and trials. I know that they will have a difficult time today. I want them to know I love them all. Valentines isn't just about the romantic love, but the love we can all feel from the one who loves us most, our Father in Heaven. So to those who may not have someone to go home to tonight, know that the Lord loves you and so do I!!! Happy Valentines Day!"

I couldn't have said this any better.  I think Valentine's Day can be a wonderful day for some and a hard day for others.  No matter who you are, you are loved more than you know!!!
A Big Happy Valentine's Day To Everyone!!

~Good Monday Morning Friends~
What a great weekend!!  It sure feels like we have a baby again.  Oh Wait...... We do!  It just happens to have four legs instead of two.  (wink) 
(I blocked him into the kitchen and he thought he could chew his way through the Chair - NOT!!
Good thing I love the Rustic Look) 
He loves to be held and with our three munchkins that live here, that doesn't seem to be a problem. (ok, Eric and I love holding him too).  He only likes to sleep if we are by him.  The kids and Eric took him out into the snow yesterday and he LOVED it.  The only problem was, the snow is deeper than he is tall.  The kids loved watching him plow his way through the snow.  He loves teasing our other dog Oreo.  We think it is funny that Oreo is getting teased now, because she was always the one that teased our big Higgins.  What great memories we are making.....
Silly Dog keeps barking at me because I won't move the chair.

How about a Super Cute Spring Daisy???

Happy Friday and a
Big Congratulations to Our Family!!  
Our Family has grown by FOUR feet - 
After our Sweet Higgins died a few months ago, my kiddos have been really sad.  So their awesome mother (wink) gave them the surprise of a lifetime at Christmas.
We have a wonderful Christmas Eve together as a family.  We opened each others gifts, read from the scriptures, recorded our Christmas book and then I told them I had ordered something, but we wouldn't get it until February!  I told them they could only have it if we called "HIM" Chett!  
Tears just streamed down my kids faces.  It was the most incredible surprise ever.  I think the most shocking thing about this whole surprise was that "I" was the one who allowed this.  
(remember, I am new at this animal/farm thing)
I looked at Eric and he had a total look of Shock On His Face.  I was so proud of myself for pulling this surprise off.  Then he dropped the bomb...... he had another lab on hold somewhere else.  Apparently Great Minds Think Alike!  
Thank heavens we were able to cancel that order.  There is not room for eight more legs around here.  
So Chett arrived at our home last night around 9:00 and what a night!  The kids are sure he needs to be in the house (in a kennel) for now because it is so cold.  I agree.....I even agreed at 12:30 a.m.when he was still whining because he wanted us to be with him.  (He will be an outside dog as soon as it warms up a little)  Eric was a real trooper and got up with him for a while.  He is just like a baby.  Once Eric held him, he was very content and slept.  Thank goodness Kylan relieved Eric part of the way through the night and slept on the hard wood kitchen floor with him the rest of the night.  I told the kids, he is not to go on the carpet!!!
This was Chett's first bath last night.  He is so cute!!!

Enough about Chett for now!!
