Fall Decor-Part 1

I have a tradition for my fall porch decor.  It includes real white pumpkins. Guess what? Haven't been able to find any!  One of the local grocery stores has some but they are shaped like a disc...I want just plain regular shaped pumpkins!  So today, while you are getting to see what my inside fall decor is, I'm out hunting!
I don't have much, don't have a whole lot of space right now but I did add a few things!
Everyone knows these guys, right?
$1 carveable pumpkins from the Dollar Tree.  While I had the copper metallic paint out last week I sprayed these guys too!
And this is where they went...

How about my $5 trunk?! It's actually a colorguard trunk from a local high school!!  My niece's band was having a yard sale back in the summer and they had a ton of these!! The sale was donation only so I took one....for $5!  I'm kicking myself for not loading down the car with these!!! It would make a great picnic 'basket'!!  This is my first use for it!

This is my 'bar'. All of this is from years past!

Yes you are seeing's one of the smallest kitchens ever!  

Dinning table arrangement....that pumpkin is probably the oldest fall decoration I have...can't remember exactly how long I've had it but it was way before I got married!

 Won the scarecrow at Bunco last year!  Don't mind my lack of green thumb skills!!
Acorn bells with ribbon are left over from my wedding...there's one on the other side of the massive window as well!

And finally, I wanted to join the glitter pumpkin club but since I had so much copper metallic paint still, I didn't see any reason on spending money on the popular Krylon paint.   Then I saw that Mary Kathryn at The Matthews Family Happenings had some glitter pumpkins from the Dollar Spot at Target!  What?! So  off to Target I went, half expecting them to be all gone....almost!!  I got the last orange one and since they were only $2.50 I got 2 black! 2 went to the top of the fridge by Henry....

And this guy is on the kitchen counter....can't decide if I want to add anything or not....but I sure am glad I have him!!
And that's it.  I have a few things that are Thanksgiving themed that I'll add with some rearranging.  This was a good change for me...don't have much of anything going on in the decor area since we're trying to sell.

My mission now is to finish the outside!!
Happy Fall Finally!!

See my Link Parties Page for where I'll be!
And I'll be linking up at Today's Creative Blog's Get Your Craft On!
