Here is the entire package. The contents are: 1 beautiful box painted by Barbara herself...lovely!, a beautiful card, Teas that include Constant comment, Lemon Lift, Vanilla Chai, Hot Cinnamon Spice, Lady Grey(I am curious about that sounds great), These next teas are all by Revolution Golden Flowers Herbal tea, Green Early Grey, Organic Green, Tropical Green and Sweet Ginger Peach, lovely, Some lovely blue cotton Stork yarn, Wild Ginger Triple Milled soap set from Thymes in Minneapolis(this stuff smells so wonderful), Halloween socks, candy corn candy dish, Halloween candy, Jack o'Lantern Candle holder, with a black candle and two beautifully knitted dishcloths - one with a Jack o'Lantern face and the other is an illusion one of a candy corn!
