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 Monday Morning Everyone!!!
Wow, I haven't been here for a few days.  I really thought I could pack everything in our home, move to our new home, continue working in the shop, make it to all of the "End Of School Year" Concerts and Assemblies and continue posting our blog.  Wow, Was I WRONG!!!  Obviously I haven't moved since we got married 17 years ago (when we had absolutely nothing).  I was chatting with my dear "WISE" mother a couple days ago and she told me to close up shop and worry about moving.  She has never steered me wrong before, so once again....... I am going to obey her and focus on moving! 
We will be back to working the second week in June.  If any of you have placed orders and need them before then, please email us at ontheavenuelogan@gmail.com
and let us know.  We have contacted several of you about your orders being done.  If you would like to pick those up during the next couple of weeks, please email us and we can set up a time for you to come.

We hope you have a wonderful "Beginning To Summer" and we can't wait to be with you all again.  Have a wonderful Day!!

~well hello friends~
Welcome To ~Make Your House A Home~.......... This is our Saturday post where we share the things that ~Makes Our House A Home~.  For today's post I wanted to share a fun wreath I made.  It took a couple hours and was quite messy, (ok, really messy) but the end product was super stinkin' cute!!!
A Burlap Wreath
I have seen many tutorials on this type of wreath so I purchased the wreath and burlap months and months ago.  I finally took some time and made this!  This is a super easy project.  It was really messy and I had to run right to the shower when I was done because my whole body was itching.... but oh, it was worth it.
 
The first step was to cut my burlap into 4" strips.  I used my rotary cutter and cutting board.  I have cut burlap many times with my scissors, but didn't want to take the time for this project.  
After I had all of my strips cut, I cut the strips into 4" squares.
This part reminds me of my first grade art projects.  I know you all have done this at one time or another.   Remember that one we made with tissue paper?????  The one where we twisted the square pieces of paper around the end of our pencil eraser and dipped it in Elmer's Glue and then placed it on the craft paper.  I LOVED that craft!  One of my favorite.......
That is the exact same process for this wreath.  Get ready for the childhood memories to come rushing back!!  I twisted the 4" square pieces of burlap around a marker and added a little hot glue onto the end of the fabric.  I placed it right on the wreath, held it there for a few seconds and tadaa!!!
I glued and glued and glued and glued and glued - and then started itching, but I continued to glue!!!   I couldn't wait for this project to be completed!

Are You All Ready For The End Result???  
(After I just typed that sentence, I remembered I already showed the finished project in the first picture.) Maybe I need a long nap!!!
  
I am really excited to make a couple more of these wreaths with different colors of burlap.  I have used green, red, orange and cream.  Oh, just think of the possibilities!!!

~thanks for sharing part of your day with us~
Enjoy Making Your House A Home!

~Mandy~
