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.

Happy Day Everyone!!!
I am Super Excited to share Today's SALE Item with all of you.  I saw something on Pinterest a while ago that got me thinking about my Laundry Room.  I have a couple different decor items in there, but to sum up my laundry room I would say.......... Needs Work!!!
So...... check out what I made for my Laundry Room.  
Wash, Dry & Rooster Signs
The Wash & Dry Signs are 16"X 20" (which is a fantastic size).  We added pieces of wood along the top and bottom of the signs and distressed them really good!!!  I am an absolute fan of roosters, so I thought I would add a rooster sign with the Dry and Wash signs.  We will be selling them as a set of all three signs or just a set of the Dry and Wash Signs. 
These signs are available in Antique White with The Black Writing or Black with White Writing.  These signs are stippled (not vinyl) which gives it a more rustic look.  I added some burlap on the Dry and Rooster signs - Cute Huh????

Hey Friends!!
Welcome To ~Make Your House A Home~ We had the most wonderful day today!  It was one of those days that puts life into perspective and once again has helped me realize what really matters in life.  I simply love our family and friends and am so blessed for all of them!!  I have mentioned that our family belongs to the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints and it is the biggest blessing of our lives.  When a child turns eight years old they are given the opportunity to be baptized if they choose to do so.  
(For more information about The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints, please see the church's web-site)
www.lds.org 

Today..... my sweet Chloee was baptized and it was the most amazing day.  We had such wonderful support from our family and friends.  We are just so blessed!!  Eric's mom made her dress and let's just say...... it could have been a wedding dress.  She went with her grandma and picked out the pattern and fabrics.  I am sure at least 20 hours later, the dress was finished and beautiful.  She twirled and twirled and twirled and twirled!!!  It was a little girls dream come true!!  

Isn't her dress beautiful?  I must say the boys are quite handsome too!!!  Where does the time go?  They were just babies!!  I am so thankful for my kiddos and my hot hubbie!!! (wink)
 They really are best friends and the boys really love and protect her.  They really love to tease her too! The best of both worlds! 
This is an amazing picture and Chloee is so blessed.  Eric's parents (Boyd & Sheri - (the dress maker)) are on the left, my mom and dad (Mike and Wendy) are just to the right of me and my Grandma and Grandpa Pearce are next to my mom.  What a blessing grandparents are.  Today was also my Grandma's 80th Birthday, so we had balloons and cards for her at our luncheon after the baptism.  We love her so much!  Chloee actually has another set of Great Grandparents (Grandma and Grandpa Abbott) and another Great Grandmother (Grandma Shirley) that couldn't be with us today. It is such a blessing to have such wisdom and love in our family!!   We love you all!!! 
This is Chloee and Johnny!  They are only 4 months a part and we are often asked if they are twins.  
Gotta Love Cousins!!!
Here are some of the cousins from my side of the family. 
 (We were only missing four cousins in this picture) 
We got pictures of the cousins from Eric's side, but it wasn't with my camera.  We will have to get a copy of those!
We all went to Firehouse Pizzeria after the Baptism.  It was delicious and so much fun.  Our waiters were awesome and did such a great job.  We had over 30 of us (Whew - poor guys).  Here are some of the fun pictures from our lunch.  Thank goodness there were more cameras going off than ours.  I need to get a hold of more pictures.  But for now, this will work.











A Big Thanks to our wonderful families and friends for being such a great support to us!!  We love you all!
And Thanks to all of you for spending part of your day with us on our Special Day!!!

We hope you all enjoy your weekend and we will see you back here on Monday!!

Welcome to ~Make Your House A Home~ Monday edition, because Saturday was too beautiful and my yard needed some spring cleaning.  Boy, we got a lot of work done and my body is a little sore.  It feels so good when I can check things off my list.  Thanks to my cute kiddos and husband for all their help.  It is wonderful having two teenage boys around the house.  They have been so much help.

So here are a couple fun projects I have been working on for our home.   Check out this Super Cute Rooster board.  I absolutely LOVE THIS!! 
 A Friend of ours gave us some scrap wood and in that assortment was this piece of molding.  I didn't take a picture of this board before I painted it, but here are a couple pictures of this board once I painted it Antique white.  It took me a few minutes to paint and let dry.  I just used an antique white craft paint this time.   

 After the paint dried, I sanded all the edges giving it this rustic look.   I love the really rustic look, so I sanded it quite a bit.  Then I added a dark stain finish over the paint.  I took a Q-Tip and added stain into all of the cracks giving it a darker look.  I wiped of the extra stain and TaDaa!!

I  purchased three rooster hooks about six months ago at Hobby Lobby.  They were 50% off and I knew I could use them for something.  When I saw this board, I knew I had found the home for these roosters.  They went on perfect!! 


I just used some silver screws that were in the shop.  They didn't match, so I took some black paint and painted over the screws.  (see the one on the right).  It looked much better once the screws were painted.  

Once again, here if the final project.  Not sure where it is going yet, but I am sure I will find the perfect spot!!

***********************************
Here is another quick project I put together in a matter of minutes!!!  Yes, I said a matter of minutes.  I found these old cabinet doors at a thrift store quite a while ago.  They were already painted, so I grabbed them and brought them home.  Again, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but for a couple bucks, I couldn't pass it up.   

I picked up these door knobs at Hobby Lobby the same day I purchased my rooster hooks.  I think they are perfect with the cabinet doors.  I still need to find a place for these also, but I am sure I won't have a problem doing that!!

 My Two 10 Minute matching cabinet doors!

It probably only took me a total of one hour to finish both of these projects.  That is my kind of project.  I love a project I can start and finish really quickly....... then sit back and enjoy!
