Simply Shera Etsy Store Update!

In a moment of pure randomness I decided to give most of my products an actual name. Each one shares a name with a song I like, making everything in my shop just a little more personal.

Also I have just added a new item:
The Hopeless Wanderer knitted red scarf!

Modeled here by my sister who started off being a toot as usual:

Our brother really wanted to be in the shot too, (he's a camera hog!) even if it was just his back. He is wearing Hannah's scarf like a turban.

You can find him peeking out from behind the two trees in the distance.

Old Movie Review: Topper Returns

In Topper Returns, a young woman named Gail, (Joan Blondell) staying with her wealthy friend, Ann (Carole Landis,) makes the unlucky choice of switching bedrooms with her. That night Gail is mistaken for Ann and murdered. Now a ghost, Gail wanders over to the house next door and enlists the help of Cosmo Topper (Roland Young) to catch her killer!
Together with Topper's weary chauffeur (Eddie 'Rochester' Anderson,) they return to the home where they find Gail's body has disappeared. The whole house is woken up, and the ditsy Mrs. Topper (Billie Burke) invites herself and maid in for the mystery to keep an eye on her husband. The police are called, and Ann invites the handsome taxi driver, Bob (Dennis O'Keefe,) in as her bodyguard. Now everyone is a suspect in this comedic classic "who-dun-it" mystery complete with a Sea Lion.
Memorable Movie Line:  "Why, you're all wet. Is it raining out? Oh, but you haven't been out. Can't be raining in. Well, if it has, it's all cleared up." - Mrs. Topper

Marchin' On

February is always over so soon. But I'm looking forward to Easter! And Spring! I enjoy seeing the plants and trees start to bloom on my walks outside. I'm looking forward to seeing the flowers begin to bloom and I'm also really looking forward to pressing some flowers to save for times to come!

This month I am...
Reading: Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
Listening to: The Lumineers by The Lumineers
Making: pretty easter eggs hopefully :)

Why Viggle Is The Coolest Thing Ever

So today I decided to tell you about the Viggle app, if you haven't already heard about it. It's a free app where you get free stuff just for watching tv. Yeah I said it, you get paid to lie around and watch your favorite shows. It's pretty amazing.
First what you do is check into whatever show you are watching. The app will listen to your tv for a few seconds to match it to (hopefully) the correct tv show. You earn points for how long you watch and sometimes some of the shows come with extra bonus points. You can also get extra bonus points by watching some videos on the app and playing some trivia games.

You save up your points and use them to get gift cards and other goodies from some of your favorite shops! (these vary monthly.) My dad bought me a mini fridge for my room with best buy gift cards from Viggle, and my mom and I both used our Viggle points to buy some Christmas presents this year.

Are you convinced yet?

Happy viggling!
