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 Friends......
Years ago when I started this blog for our business, I had no idea it would evolve into a blog where I would share our family experiences, good moments, sad moments, religion,  jokes and so much more.  I didn't understand how far-reaching a simple blog could be.  I sit in my home everyday and type about our life and business and it travels instantly through out the world.  And Crazy enough to me..... people read it!  Not only has this become a blog for our business, our personal life and so much more, but it has also become a way we can hopefully help others with the help of all of you!!! 

Last night as Ghavan (my middle child - LOL) and I were walking in from our youth activities, he received a text from a friend telling him that his bosses hay barn had caught fire and had burnt to the ground.  Instantly my heart sank, because that is a horrible loss.  Of course we all find ourselves wondering what we can do to help, but a lot of times turn away because we don't feel like we can make a difference.  I am grateful for people who step up and take the initiative to pave a way for others to help.  (Thanks Margaret!!)
    
Our awesome community is already organizing an event (A Barn Dance - woohoo) and fundraising is underway to help this family.  Below is a link that will take you to the donation page where you can read about the family, the fire and ways you can help...... 
Remember, it is the small things that make big differences in the world.  I remember just shortly after I was diagnosed with breast cancer, the small acts of kindness began pouring in.  It was so humbling and truly changed my life and the attitude I had about service. 
It truly is ~By Small And Simple Things that Great Things Are Brought To Pass~ 
Let' s help make a difference in this family's life.
