Enter to win an ADORABLE Patriotic Outfit Sz 12m-8

How many of you know that I am a military spouse? My husband has been in the military since 1981. He originally served with the United States Air Force and is now a full time Air Guard member. Through my military affiliation I have been honored to serve on an Etsy Homefront Team. We're a group of military family members who sell our crafts on Etsy. StitchnLove is on the Homefront Team with me and she just started a Homefront Guild on Artfire.

Be sure to stop by both Etsy and Artfire to look at products for sale by military families.

In honor of Memorial Day and upcoming Fourth of July, StitchnLove has offered a custom made Patriotic Outfit to one of my Front Porch Reviews readers (size 12m to 8 years). Wouldn't your little one look adorable standing on the side of the road for the Fourth of July parade decked out in one of these outfits?

Cinco de Mayo

Happy Cindo de Mayo! It's time to celebrate the Mexican Influence on America. Here's a spotlight of some items for sale on Artfire.

Start with this cute and eco-friendly notebook from withourhands. Made from an upcycled Mexican Style Hot Pockets box. Only $2.50

How about some Mexican Mug Mats? These beauties are the essence of summer. Perfect for a fiesta or just a picnic with great margaritas! The mats are made entirely with embroidery thread - no fabric is involved. They are machine washable and color safe.
The mats come in sets of 6 and are $16.00.

Now we have a cute little Mexican Flag Charm. The seller of this charm, Cripple Creek Boutique, sells magnetic lockets that this charm can be used on. This charm is also great for use in your craft project. $5.00

Don't forget about your cat. This cute Catnip Taco comes in a set of two. Each one is stuffed to capacity with 100% Organic Catnip that will send your cat to the Moon. $8.00 for two catnip toys.

Maybe you'd like some Mexican Artwork for your walls. The Cantina is an original water colour painting on paper 280gsm. Created using professional quality water colours and mediums. This has been framed in a Black Frame behind glass. Artwork is ready to hang as soon as it arrives. This beautiful piece is only $45.00.

and last, but definitely not least is the Lime Margarita Bar of Soap. The Mexican influence is not complete without something with Margarita in it. Don't drink and drive, instead bathe in this fresh-squeezed scent of Mexican limes, Cointreau, and tequila. Transform your bath time into a South of the Border Happy Hour! Tangy citrus, sweet hints of orange, and the wickedness of sweet blue agave tequila, combine for a perfect fiesta fragrance. $5.00
