The Smells of Christmas

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.
