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!!!
We had a super fun weekend (kind of)!!  We started the weekend by having our Family Pictures taken on Friday night.  Talk about stressful!!!  Why do we make family pictures so stressful?  Seriously!!!  As of Friday morning, I didn't even know what I was going to wear.  How could I leave it until then???  After all, we have to color coordinate each other's outfits because we have to look our best right?  Thank goodness my friend Amy came to the rescue, raided her closet and sent me home with some super cute clothes.  Otherwise I may have been in my painting jeans and hoodie.  Ahhhhh!!!   Eric reminded me at 3:00 that we had to wrap up a big order because it had to be delivered to Ogden that night after our pictures.  By now, I am not in the bests of moods.  Our photographer (thank goodness she is my dear friend) was coming at 5:00.  So pretty much I had to wrap up all the orders and get Chloee and myself ready for pictures and we had less than two hours to do it.  Are you kidding me???  Once again, another angel came to the rescue.  My sweet mother in law jumped right in and helped me get everything wrapped so we could get ready.  By the time we actually started pictures, I was grumpy.  I kept giving my kids the death look (all of you mom's know what I am talking about - that look you give to your kids that tells them they better shape up or they will be grounded for the rest of their lives) during our photo shoot because my boys seem to become absolutely hilarious when they are together. The worst part is, they were REALLY FUNNY!!!  I mean really funny and I was trying to keep things serious and under control so our pictures would turn out.  Ahhhhhh! (Eric sweetly reminded me that the best pictures usually come after something funny was done or said and he was right)  We stayed at our home for the pictures and took most of them in the field across from our home.  Our sweet dog Oreo could see us and decided to quietly sneak over and join us.  What a fiasco!  Can I just say, we have the best Photographer in the whole wide world.  Mandy Bagley - WE LOVE YOU!!!  Not only did she take our pictures, but she entertained the dog at the same time so Oreo wouldn't get into every picture she took of our family.  By the time the shoot was over, I decided that I really loved my family again and I felt really bad for being grumpy.   We got some really fun pictures and I can't wait to put together this years Christmas card.  My kids may regret the fun they had during our photo shoot........  Revenge is so sweet!!!  This is the only picture I have right now, but I just thought I would share.  Thanks Mandy Bagley with Shooting Star Photography!!
