Now that Thanksgiving has passed, I can really focus on getting excited for the holidays!
We don't have a tree yet, and all our Christmas decor is still packed away in boxes, but it already smells like Christmas at our house! You know what smell I am talking about... cinnamon, and spice (and everything nice).
Williams Sonoma has mastered this smell - walk into any of their stores and you'll know what I'm talking about. Luckily, the recipe could not be easier!
Boil a pot of water, add two sliced lemons, three tablespoons of vanilla, one teaspoon of cinnamon, and half a teaspoon of all spice. Bring this concoction down to a simmer, and let it go all day (or night) long, adding water as needed!
You can also vary the recipe, and include rosemary (as I do sometimes) for a really fresh, clean scent.
