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.

Good Morning and Happy Monday!!
Wow, what a weekend!!!  The boys and I had quite an adventure this weekend.  One that I am glad we experienced, but I have no desire to ever experience again.  We had our Youth Conference this weekend for our Young Women and Young Men (ages 12 - 18).   Our theme was "I Can Do Hard Things"...... and boy did we do a hard thing.  

Are You Ready for This?????
We hiked the Wellsville Mountains!!!  
See this picture ....... It looks beautiful doesn't it????  Thank goodness my friend Lee took these pictures, because I didn't see much of this view.  I had my eye on the back side of my friends shoes the entire time as I tried to stay alive!   I am being totally honest when I say it was one of the hardest physical things I have ever done.  It took us almost four hours to hike to the top (not sure which peak it was, but we were able to see into Brigham City - which to me was plenty high enough).  I don't remember a time when my legs hurt this bad.  I am so grateful for my dear friends and My Ky who constantly kept telling me to keep going.  (Ky even gave me some physical support by pushing me up the hill a few times - I was so grateful he was behind me!)

What a Crazy Weekend and I am so grateful it is behind me and that I was able to finish the hike.
Once again, I really learned "I Can Do Hard Things..." especially with help from others.

Today's

Good Morning Friends!!!
The rain is falling and I heard rumor that it could possibly turn to snow today...... Wow, SNOW?????  I mentioned to my kids that I heard there could be snow today, so one of the first things Chloee said this morning was.... "Is there white snow outside?"  Unfortunately for her, there was nothing white outside this morning, however this could change.  There is just something magical about the change of seasons!!  I am sure if we don't see snow today, it will come in the next few months.........

Did you all realize the Christmas is only three months away???  (Isn't this great news???)  I know it is hard for most of you to imagine purchasing Christmas decor right now, so let's just get all of the gift buying out of the way and we can decorate when it gets closer!!!

Well...... Happy Monday Morning Everyone!!
The weather really plays a part in my mood everyday!!! Cool Crisp mornings bring out the baker in me.  Fresh baked bread, cookies or treats are a favorite and a delicious soup or stew is the best!!!  The cookies have been made and the roast in the crock post smells divine.  It is amazing how much I can accomplish when I am awake at 5:30 in the morning......  Let's hope I am still going strong in a few hours.   Today the sun is shining and a cool breeze is blowing into the windows of our home.  There is a sweet smell that comes this time of year and I absolutely love it!!!  I can't explain how much I love this time of year and the next four months to follow.  Absolutely Magical to Eric and I.
