1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups Kinnikinnick Gluten-Free "Graham Style" Crackers*
(I process in food processor)
1 (14 ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 cups semisweet chocolate morsels
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts if desired
*You will need to buy 2 boxes....use the extras to make s'mores!
Heat oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees for glass dish). Coat 13x9-inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray.
Combine graham cracker crumbs and butter. Press into bottom of prepared pan. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture. Layer evenly with chocolate chips, coconut and nuts. Press down firmly with a fork.
Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Cut into bars or diamonds. Store covered at room temperature.
Note: I always check that the chocolate chips I am using have not been processed in a facility that processes wheat or other gluten containing products.
Have a wonderful New Year's Eve!
From my world to yours...Have wonderful holidays. Enjoy every second with your family and friends. Smile, embrace, laugh, make memories to be recalled for a lifetime.

-felt cut-outs: I bought mine on Etsy, but would sure like to know how to make my own!
-common pins with the colorful ball end (I'm sure they have a different name :0
-vintage seambinding...or any scraps of ribbon that coordinate
1. Place felt flowers on ball one at a time, sticking pin through center of flower.
2. Slightly overlap.
You may want to lay out your piles by color....much easier to alternate colors
3. When ball is filled, pull one flower up and fasten looped ribbon onto ball with pin.
That's it!!!! So very pretty!
We traveled with 20 good friends by limo to Delfrisco's Steak House. So nice not having to drive, park, etc...
I cannot remember the last time I had so many laughs. We were in a private room, so we were able to have a "mini roast", and maybe get a bit louder than we would have in the middle of the restaurant.
The food was AMAZING, the restaurant stunning, and the company was ideal.
We were eating chocolate mousse and cheesecake at midnight, and finally fell into bed around 2:30 a.m.
Now for those of you who follow my blog....you will know that this in itself is amazing. I mean, this 46 yr old teacher is usually in jammies watching tv by 8:30...up at 5:20. So 2:30 made me feel like I was 25 again. Of course, puppy had me up at 5:15. So I was hurting for a day...or two.
Probably won't happen again for another 20 yrs...so there will be plenty of time to work on the newly made laugh lines I acquired that night....well worth it.
I would love some advice.
Currently our bedroom is wallpapered. That would have to go. But I think a skim coat would be in order to get nice smooth walls.
Any suggestions for paint color?
Our bedroom is our "catch-all" room. Piles of bills, boxes for Ebay and Etsy, stuff we "shouldn't" throw out. But I really need this to happen.
Now I know there are LOTS of great decorators out there...I read your blogs, I know....so lend me your tips....pretty please?
I am giving away a set of 5 of my organic sachets to one luck winner! We grow organic lavender and pick the blossoms. As a family we strip the buds after they dry. I hand-stamp the seahorse motif onto the bags in a pretty denim color blue, and fill the bags with lavender.
I will select a winner on Sunday, and I will mail on Monday.

I will also giftwrap each in a cello bag with a handstamped vintage ribbon if desired. They make fun gifts for teachers, secretaries, Secret Santas, etc...
