8 Ways to Decorate with “And Though She Be But Little, She Is Fierce”

When Helena said it of Hermia, she didn’t mean it kindly:

O, when she’s angry, she is keen and shrewd!
She was a vixen when she went to school;
And though she be but little, she is fierce.

Certainly Hermia took them as fighting words:

‘Little’ again! nothing but ‘low’ and ‘little’!
Why will you suffer her to flout me thus?
Let me come to her.

But at some point this century, the last line of Helena’s quote from A Midsummer Night’s Dream has been claimed as a compliment to girls everywhere: And though she be but little, she is fierce.

Here are eight ways to decorate your home, your baby, or yourself with this Shakespeare quote:

Perhaps you’d like a rustic wooden sign, $20.

 

Or maybe a lovely floral print is more your speed, $13.99 and up.

 

Go big and go home (see what I did there?) with this gold wall decal, $23.45 and up.

 

Perhaps you’d like to say it with a greeting card, $4.06 each.

 

Dress your small but fierce friend in this adorable onesie, multiple colors, $18.

 

Maybe you’d like a stamped necklace with your choice of charm, $16.

 

Or this beautiful stamped cuff, multiple fonts and materials available, $8.45 and up.

 

Last but not least, say it with cross-stitch, pattern only, $3.96.

32 Badass Avengers Shirts to Prepare You for Endgame

We’ve all screamed ourselves hoarse by now about Avengers: Endgame, which is set for its U.S. release on April 26. It’s the culmination of over a decade of anticipation and nerdiness.

It’s a perfect time to wear your Avengers shirts with pride.

If you don’t have time to marathon all of the MCU, though, fear not! We’ve got an Infinity War quiz for a quick recap, and we’ve scoured the Internet for some awesome Avengers shirts to get you in that Marvel mood. And of course, there’s the Endgame trailer if you’re down for some extra angst.

Book Fetish: Volume 350

This week’s Book Fetish is sponsored by the audiobook edition of Saving Meghan by D. J. Palmer.

Fifteen-year-old Meghan has been in and out of hospitals with a plague of unexplained illnesses. But when the ailments take a sharp turn, clashing medical opinions begin to raise questions about the puzzling nature of Meghan’s illness. Doctors suspect Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a rare behavioral disorder where the primary caretaker seeks medical help for made-up symptoms of a child. Is this what’s going on? Or is there something even more sinister at hand?

40 Outstanding Literary Keychains For Your Bookish Life

I don’t keep a lot of keychains on my keys, but I do keep meaningful or useful ones. I tend to keep them until they physically disappear from being so banged up from daily wear and tear. My current array includes a Wonder Woman mini figurine, a miniature yoga mat, a personal safety device (that’s a nice way to say sharp cat ears), and a bright pink owl. Even though I keep it pretty simple, I love looking at the wide array of literary keychains out there and thinking about the ones I’d like in the future.

The great thing about literary keychains, or really any keychains at all, is that they’re relatively inexpensive and they can get a lot of use and admiration. If you live somewhere you need to lock a door, you have an opportunity to take a moment and remember something or someone you love via the little charm.

Find below a wide array of fun, clever, and cheeky literary keychains. These would make the perfect gifts for you, your bestie, or any other book lover in your life.
