Sweet & Simple Valentine Decor: Burlap & Hearts

As the title says, this little project IS sweet and simple.  
(Especially for me, since I did a pumpkin version of this back in the Fall, so I just took off that burlap piece and replaced it with a new one, adorned with hearts!)
Not much explanation needed here .... 
-burlap cut to fit in an old chippy frame.
-hearts punched out of cute vintage-y craft paper with my (Martha Stewart Collections) heart punch.
-glue dots.
-the end.

We'll start with the pictures I took outside, on the porch.
(I've told you before, but I have a problematic dining room where photo-taking is concerned.)

Now, to the dining room ... where this cute little project actually lives.  
(It is hanging in an iron wreath stand, in front of a large tin ceiling tile.)

And the beauty of this project is .... when it's time for a new holiday/season, I just take out that piece of burlap (and save it for next year), and replace it with something else!

I'll see you in the morning for a special Little Bit of Life .... and then GIVEAWAY, GIVEAWAY, and GIVEAWAY for 
I promise. :-)
