Home Tour Friday: My "Dining Room" and Kitchen

Welcome back to another link up with Kelly's Korner where I am showing you all my lovely post-college apartment. Today : My "Dining Room" and kitchen. I know it's supposed to be just the dining room but I don't really have that so I'm combining it with my kitchen.
The seating area. This table belonged to my parents, I think it was their first kitchen table together. (Mom look, I got a table cloth just like you told me to-see I listen.) Parents, a word of advice. Do not throw away any furniture! Save it for your college kids. Put it in your basement-it will appreciated again one day! I promise.
In the center of the table. A cinnamon apple spiced candle, a mini pumpkin and napkins that say "I'm not saying she's a slut... Well okay, yes I am." hehe
My little cooking area.

My fridge and pantry door all ready for October. I will share all my fall decorations soon!
