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 Everyone!!!
We had another great weekend.  We had my Pearce Family Reunion (my parents, siblings and their families) this past weekend.  We WENT CAMPING!!!!  I have to admit, I am not a fan of camping.  I have tried for years to LOVE it and well........  It just hasn't happened yet.  But this weekend was so much fun.  A few of my siblings couldn't make it and we missed them, but those of us who came had a great time.  We spent Saturday at Bear Lake and it was awesome!!  The water was pretty cold, but the sunshine was amazing and the kids and adults had a blast!!!!  
Ghavan is laying in the water hole.  He needs to cool down after all that digging.


Kylan is laughing at Ghavan as he is digging the hole.
My Ghavan cracks me up.  He is really, really funny.  Eric decided to take a snooze in the truck.  While he was sleeping Ghavan dug a trench (with our emergency shovel) from the lake to our truck.  He dug a hole right under the drivers side door and let it fill up with water.  The idea was that when Eric woke up and stepped out of the truck, he would land in a big water hole.  Unfortunately, Eric noticed the hole before he stepped out.  But the anticipation of it all was hilarious!!!  What a crazy kid!!!

Here are just a few other pictures of our fantastic weekend....
My brother Morgan and his family!  Soaking up the rays!

Aunt Heidi and Chloee riding the 4-wheeler.  So Fun!

Oreo decided to sit on Reagan's lap.  Love my little campers.

Soakin up the rays with my sisters, nieces and nephew.  Love you All!

Baby Norah's first time at Bear Lake.  He daddy loves her!

Oh So Cool!!!  Love My Ky!!!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!
Eric and I also celebrated our 19th Wedding Anniversary yesterday!  We have been together for 23 years now (yep, we kinda fell in love when we were 17 - crazy huh?)  I love you my dear!   I can't imagine life without you!!!

WOHOOOOOOO!!!!!
It's SUMMER Time!  What a great time of year.  All of our year end school events are over and WHEW!  It was the busiest May we have ever had.  Having all three kids in different schools with different activities has been a little crazy! I am seriously sighing of relief now!  Crazy thing is, we were up earlier today than normal and on the run!  Lots of errands run and already working on our orders!  We will have SO MANY orders ready by the end of the week.  I will message each of you as your orders are finished up.  Thank you for your patience.  We are figuring this $10.00 Tuesday madness out and orders will be finished much quicker in the future!!!!!  THANK YOU!!!

Guess What??? 
There will be no $10.00 Tuesday tomorrow because my cute KY is shooting trap at the STATE tournament tomorrow.  I am so excited to watch him shoot!  Good Luck KY!!!! Love you so much!!!
Notice he has a pink shot gun shell - My boys love shooting the PINK shells.  I was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple years ago and we love supporting the cause!!   Kind of makes me tear up a little!!

Well Hello Everyone!!!
Ghavan, Grandma Abbott, Me, Chloee and Grandpa Abbott
Another wonderful weekend is over.  Our final High School Rodeo for this school year is over and now... we are going to rest.  (LOL)  We spent this past weekend in Delta, Utah and we had a great weekend.  Ghavan roped his first time Friday night close to midnight.  Yep, Midnight!!!  He was #95 our of 95 team ropers and his event was the last event of the day.  What are the odds???  My Ghavan missed both times, but had a great attitude about things and we loved being together.  Another huge blessing of traveling to Delta is my Grandparents and Aunt and Uncle live there.  I talked my mom into coming with us and we were able to spend lots of time with them and it was awesome.  My Grandpa is turning 90 this year.  CRAZY!!!  He servecd in World War II and told us many stories about the war while we visited with he and my grandma.  I was so impressed with the details he remembered and the stories he told us.  It was Just An Awesome Trip!  We got home early evening last night and I am working away at the laundry, cleaning and work!!!

My cute mom and her mom.  Love you both!
My Eric and Grandpa Abbott!!  Love you both!
And Now to our On The Avenue Business.......

Well Helllooooo Everyone!  
Happy Monday and I can't believe another weekend is behind us.  It was another busy, but great one.  My boys had another High School Rodeo this weekend.  Chloee and I stayed home for this one.  Hours in the rain just didn't sound fun............... so we decided to have a girls night out Friday and went to dinner and the movie ~Cinderella~ (in the theatre).  It was so much fun.  There was a group of us that went (sister, sister in law, mother, sister's mother in law and cousin) Loved the movie and the popcorn fight in the parking lot after was a blast also!  LOL  Who knew it was so hard to catch popcorn in your mouth when the wind is blowing....  WE  KNOW NOW!!!  A Big HUGE thanks to everyone who went with us.  I just love family!!

Ky and Ghavan both shot trap and Ghavan roped.  And GUESS WHAT???? Ky took 2nd place and won this beautiful belt buckle!!!  

He missed his first 3 shots which was a little shocking for all of us....... But THEN..... he hit 22 clay pigeons in a row.  Then..... 25 more which put him in a shoot off.  And once again 25 more clay piegons were blown to pieces.  (Wow, that is 72 in a row.... AWESOME!!).  They then had to back up several feet and start the process over.  Ky finally dropped a couple and ended up taking 2nd place.  The great thing about this is his buddy is the one that took 1st!  Congratulations Colter and woohoo for the Bridgerland Rodeo Club!!!!  We are proud of you both!!!

Ghavan caught again which was awesome! 
 He is working hard and getting better every week.  What a great way of life.
Look who slept in the horse trailer and listened to trains all night......  (Whew, not me!!)
And Mother's Day was awesome!  Spent time at church and ate a DELICIOUS home cooked meal by my sweetie!!!  Mashed Potatoes, steak, shrimp and rolls.  DELICIOUS!!!  Just so much to be thankful for!!!

DRAWING TIME!!!
Ok, now down to business.......  We have a super lucky winner from last week's drawing.  Remember the Super Cute Calendar Holder/Wreath Frame????  
Congratulations To Jackie Peterson!!!!!
Woohoo - Jackie - shoot me an email and let me know which color you would like.  

Today's Drawing Item is FANTASTIC!!!  Who wouldn't love a $25.00 Gift Card to On The Avenue.  Spend it on our $10.00 Tuesday items or come to our ~Make It With Mandy" Craft night.  So much fun to be had.  If you would like your name entered into our drawing..... please email us at ontheavenuelogan@gmail.com and tell us your favorite color to decorate with.  Good Luck To You All!!! 

No $10.00 Tuesday tomorrow!!!
We will not be having our $10.00 Tuesday tomorrow.  My Chloee Bug is racing in the Wellsville Mile tomorrow and I can't wait to watch her.  Good Luck Chloee!!!

Have a great day!

Happy Lunch Time Everyone!!!!
I can't believe It has been a whole week since I posted here and I just can't believe how fast time flies by!   Last week was as busy as ever.  I am in the Young Women's organization in our church (I get to work with the awesome 12-18 year old girls).  We have an activity night every Tuesday and our class was in charge of last week's activity with the young men in our ward.  We played ~HUMAN HUNGRY HIPPOS~.  Holy SMACK, that was a barrel of fun and laughter!!!  For any of you who are not familiar with what this game is, go to you tube and search for Human Hungry Hippos.  Oh My Word!!!  It was so much fun.  Our leaders and bishopric joined in and what a GREAT TIME!!!  I enjoyed it even more because Ky, Ghavan and Chloee were there with me having a great time.  Love those kids!!!  

We had a great weekend of working!!!  Many of you have been picking up orders and we appreciate it so much.  We have oodles of orders going out these doors daily and we appreciate all of you for ordering from us!!!
Check out this beautiful piece of furniture that was picked up on Saturday and made it's way home to Boise, ID. 
Isn't it beautiful???
I really wanted to keep it for myself.  LOL
Love, Love, Love!!!!!
When I went out to take the picture of this hutch, I found my boys being very responsible while having a good time.  Apparently it is a great idea to wear a Snowmobile Helmet and Goggles when riding a child's scooter.  I am so glad they are so Responsible........  Hahahahahaha!  (If that is what you call it).

Another Wild & Crazy Weekend.....
Dad, Ghav and Chloee!
I can't believe it is another Monday.  Holy Smack!!!! We had another crazy weekend of events!!  Another Rodeo on Friday and a Wedding on Saturday.  Holy Smack (again)!  It was so crazy busy and so stinkin' awesome.  We traveled several hours for our boys Rodeo on Friday.  We left really early Friday morning because my boys were scheduled to shoot (Trap, shot guns, clay pigions, loud sounds) at 10:00 that morning.  My boys have shot competitively for years and I am so happy it is part of the High School Rodeo!!  It has been such a fun opportunity watching them progress and learn from mistakes.  It is a very completitive sport and I am surprised at how well these high school kids shoot.  It isn't uncommon to drop 25, 50 or even 100 birds (clay pigeons) in a row.  It is simply impressive.  My Ky tied for 4 place 
Smile Ky!!!
and shot 47 out of 50.  He was pretty upset about the three he missed, but I was actually impressed with the 47 he hit.  LOL  I couldn't do it.  Check out the view we had at this gun range.  So Awesome!!  I believe Ghavan got 11th place which is pretty dang awesome. 

Way To Go Boys and a BIG THANKS TO CHLOEE for just going with the flow!!!


Ghavan getting ready to shoot!

Ky in his shooting stance.  He means business!

Ummmm, How do I get out Now???
And then to the RODEO!!!!  We got there at 11:30 am and Ghavan didn't rope until 10:00 that night.  It was a long, but very fun day.  You may ask us "What would a person do with all that extra time?"  Well, Eric took the opportunity to lock Kylan in the horse trailer while I laughed myself silly and took pictures.  Hahaha, Good memories!!!!  
By the time Ghavan's turn came,  it was a complete and utter down pour.  The arena was a mud hole and all of us were in coats and blankets.  The mom in me was worried about Ghavan being wet and cold and miserable.......I kept telling Eric how worried I was and he kept telling me "Ghavan was fine."  The first thing Ghavan said after he roped his calf was "THAT WAS AWESOME MOM, Best Time Ever!"   Gotta Love them boys!!!  We rolled into our drive way at 1:00 a.m. and were so grateful we had warm beds to crawl into.  I am so grateful for the time we have been given to spend with eachother.  So, so Grateful!!!!!
Sure Love My Cowboy!!!
Now Down To Business!!
So here is to another week of working and getting orders done.  We have oddles of orders coming in the week and will be contacting all of you as they are ready for pick up.  I have a room full or orders now and will be contacting all of you today/tomorrow.  We are hoping for a big week of pick ups!!!!  You have all been very patient and we appreciate it more than you know.  Having this business has been one of the biggest blessings in my life because it allows me to be a mom first.  Thank you - To All Of You - for being patient with us and allowing us to be there for our kiddos (even in the pouring rain).

It's time for our Monday Drawing......
Big Woohoo and congratulations to 
Heidi Elridge!!!!!
You are the winner for last week's Summer Subway Art sign!!!  I will make sure your name is on one of them and you can pick it up when you pick up your other orders!!  THANK you to everyone who entered last week.

Hey Everyone!!!!!
Last Week Was Seriously a BLAST!!!!!!  My sweet husband booked a "SURPRISE" Vegas Vacation for me and my mom for my birthday!!!  Our main event was seeing Donny & Marie Osmond's Vegas Show!!!!  My MOM was and still is a HUGE Donny Fan.  I grew up listening to the Osmonds and couldn't wait to hear them in person.  Oh My Heck!  It was so much fun. 
I have to admit.... I am not a traveler.   I am a HOME BODY!!! One of the main reasons for that is I get very motion sick.  Horrible motion sick!  I drive almost everywhere we go because I feel yucky if I don't.  So Flying is even worse!!!!!!  Unfortunately, I inherited this motion sickness  from my sweet mom, so we were bumps on a log for the first day!   But being a bump on a log with no responsibilities is kindof fun for a day!!!

The second day we were there was awesome.
  We were able to attend the Las Vegas LDS Temple.  Wow, it is beautiful inside and out!!!!  It was so amazing and I am so grateful for that experience with my mom!!!

Friday night was the concert and it was awesome.  Eric got us tickets on the front row and it was so cool!  During the show he asked all of us to message him on facebook letting him know we were there and he would choose a winner who would receive a free CD!!  
OH MY HECK!!!!!!  HOLY SMACK!!!
He PICKED ME!!!!!!!

Can you believe it?  My mom and I were giddy!  It was so awesome.  I messaged him on facebook thanking him for the cd and he replied!!!!  Just a cherry on the top of a great weekend.  

Today is also my Mom's Birthday!!!!
Happy Happy Birthday to the best mom in the whole wide world!  I can't imagine my life without you!!!!

And now back to business.....
We have a winner for last week's $25.00 gift Card!!!
Congratulations To Karen Duncan!!!
Get ready to spend Karen!!!
Just shoot me an email and we can set up a time for you to pick up your gift card.  Thanks to everyone who entered.

This Week's Drawing Item is another FANTASTIC ITEM!!!
