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.

Howdy Everyone!!!!
It's Thursday!!!
Wow..... we have been doing a lot of crafting around here and I just have to say......  I am so blessed!  Sometimes I can't believe I craft for a living.....  Seriously!!!  
Almost 17 years ago Eric bought me my first scroll saw.  I remember he set it up for me in the Laundry Room so I could cut things to paint.  I remember he said "Someday we will look back on this and laugh that we started cutting wood in our washroom".  Seriously..... I had no idea it would become what it has.  Sometimes I really take a deep breath and look at the "Crafting Madness" we have created and I simply cannot believe it.   What a Miracle!
Thank You to all of you for believing in us and our product.  Thank you for purchasing time after time and allowing me to craft for a living.  What a tremendous blessing it has been for our family and we are so grateful!!!

Well Hello Everyone!!!
We had a super fun weekend.  Eric and I got to babysit our three nieces - a 5 year old, a 3 year old and a new baby!!!  It was only for Saturday evening until Sunday afternoon, but it was so much fun!  My baby will be 10 in a few weeks and being able to hold a new baby (for a really long time) was so wonderful.  I was up a lot in the night with her and am still tired today, but it was worth every second.  What a blessing babies are!!!  I am so grateful her parents would share her with me!!  Thanks Morg and Heidi!!!

Good Morning Everyone!!! 
I am feeling my allergies coming on.  Sniffy nose, burning eyes and sinus' - I am positive it is from all the FLOWERS that are coming up out of the ground.  In February???  My thoughts exactly!!!  Well I can say is ~Come What May..... And Love It!~

$10.00 Tuesday.....
 Who Knew It Could Be So Much Fun?
These past two Tuesdays have been CRAZY around here.  We decided to liquidate a lot of our inventory that is just taking up space in the basement so we put oodles of items on sale for only $10.00.  It has been so much fun!!!  I had no idea how successful this $10.00 Tuesday would be.  
After some thinking we have decided to have a $10.00 Tuesday EVERY TUESDAY!!!!  
When we offer items we don't have in stock, it will take us about a week to fill those orders, but it is so worth that one week wait. Most of the items we are offering for $10.00 retail for atleast $24.  It is a great savings and we are handcrafting each item which is hard to find now days!!!  We will only be posting our $10.00 Tuesday Items on Facebook.  We have three different pages you will want to follow.  Mandy Schiess, On The Avenue and Make It With Mandy.  Once the item(s) have sold out, we will remove the post.  If you see something you would like, ORDER IT QUICKLY!!!!  We can also ship these items to all of you ~On The Avenue Friends~ who are not from this area.  There will be a shipping charge and we will need your shipping information when you order.  Thanks again to everyone who has purchased items over the past couple of weeks.  It really has been fun!!!!

We will still continue to have our FUN SALE ITEMS every day on our blog, so make sure you are watching for those special items at fantastic prices.  
I Absolutely love Today's SALE ITEM!!!  It is one we have offered for years and are still making and selling them.

Calendar/Wreath Holder
The overall dimensions for this calendar holder are 20" Across x 32" Tall.  The opening is beadboard and I absolutely love the shelf with the false knobs.  It gives it that chunky look and also give you a place to put stuff.  Any kind of STUFF!!!  Heaven knows we all have STUFF!!!  Available in Black, Antique White, Antique Gold, Bing Cherry Red or Burnt Umber Brown.  
On Sale - $30.00


To place an order for Today's SALE ITEM/Calendar Holder, please email us at ontheavenuelogan@gmail.com or use the BUY NOW option.  The BUY NOW option allows you to order and pay for this item using your Paypal Account or a credit/debit card.   This is definitely an item we can ship.  Shipping will be calculated on an individual basis and billed separately through Paypal.  

Have a Super Great Day!!!

Good Monday Morning Friends and Happy Presidents Day!!  
Eric and the kiddos are all home today and running in different directions.  The weather has been so beautiful and it has given us all Spring fever.  My flowers have started coming up...... and so have the yucky weeds.  This time of year is like a breath of fresh air.  

$10.00 Tuesday
So, I definitely was MIA last week.  We had our first $10.00 Tuesday last week and HOLY SMACK!!!  It was a blast and the busiest day I have ever had with our business.  I couldn't believe all the orders we had and how many of you said it was fun.  I found myself organizing orders all week and didn't make it to our blog.  

I ALSO Found a lot of other items in our basement that need a new home.  So Guess What?????????
We are having another $10.00 Tuesday tomorrow. 
 For any of you who missed this last week, let me explain how this works.  Starting at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, we will be posting random items for only $10.00 on three different Facebook Pages. 

You Can follow all three pages or just one.  All Sale Items post onto all three pages at the same time.  Once we sell out of that item, we will remove that post.  If you see something you would like, leave a comment with your name and phone number as quickly as possible!!!    Most of the items we posted last week had a retail value around $24.00, so $10.00 is a FANTASTIC PRICE!!   

Don't miss out on purchasing great items at an even better price.  It will be a blast!!!

Now... On to Today's SALE ITEM.... We Love SPRING items.
SPRING Block Set
Each block is 6" x 6" and painted covered in scrabook paper.  We have added tulle, vinyl lettering and furniture tacks in each corner of the blocks.  SO CUTE!!!

Tomorrow is Ten Dollar Tuesday!!
(more about that in a minute)

It's been almost a week since I posted on this blog!!!  Last week had so many twists and turns and I am still dizzy!!!  Starting off at the top of the list was an all day (not expense paid) visit to the ER.  Not going into any more detail about that one (other than it was Eric, not myself and all is well now), taxes being done, science fair, FFA Meetings, Young Men's, Young Women's, Gymnastics and who knows what else.  This life we are all living is just so "STINKIN' CRAZY" sometimes. I guess it makes us grateful for the days that are just "Normal".  The days when nothing super crazy happens and we have more peace that chaos!!  

After such a crazy week last week, I am trying to catch up on everything we miss - TODAY!!!  The kids will be home in 15 minutes and I would love to be done posting here so when they walk in that "Sweet Loving Mother (hahaha)" is there to great them at the door.
