Hello-ween Cutie Friends

A vintage Halloween paper wall decoration from the 60's, this wee black kitten doesn't look like she could be bad luck for anyone. And her jack o' lantern friend has such a welcoming smile, doesn't he seem to be saying "Hello There Cutie!" to all the trick or treaters? xxxo

Hello-ween Cutie

Hello Kitty looks to be in her costume for Hello-ween and it's as a black cat (w/a fab bat belt!). I wonder if anyone will recognize her? With the blood dripping above, she best get out of the way to ensure her cutie outfit doesn't get any red on it. Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

A Town Called Cutie

Reader Vaughn recommended a movie called A Town Called Panic... I think it should be renamed A Town Called Cutie. Starring plastic railroad figurines w/stands (when little, I played with my brothers' for hours) it is both surreal and funny. And French. A totally Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Bling-y Cutie

I was looking for a present for a friend's baby and found this carriage at Harrod's in London. The old fashioned pram part is both fabulous and adorable. The entire thing (covered is real gold) is beyond outrageous and made me wonder if Amelie the bunny would like to go for a ride in it? That would make it beyond Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Grover is a Cutie

We all grew up with Sesame Street, and something I always adored about it were the parodies. The video above features Grover (who is a total Cutie!) spoofing the Old Spice commercials. With a monster twist. Totally silly and totally cutie! xxxo

Fiddle Faddle Cutie

Today was my Mom's birthday... Whenever I would visit her, I'd go to the store and buy Fiddle Faddle as it was her weakness (hey, whatever it would take to add a pound to her small frame I'd try it!!!). In fitting with her being a Cutie, the Faddle has a Cutie on the front of the box... it is a Cutie world after all. xxxo

miss & love you Mommy

Nom Nom Cutie

Reader Tomoko sent us this t-shirt design as she thought it Cutie and guess what? We agree! Altho I don't think my bunny Amelie would enjoy a chocolate chip cookie, if it were made of carrots and yogurt treats, I know she'd be going "Nom, nom, nom... yummy!" too. xxxo

thx Tomoko!

Packaging Cuties

What is this food? Is it a cake, flan or something else? Well whatever it is, this gets a big Hello There Cutie! Between the fluttering eyelashes on the big (mommy?) and the wink of the little one, I don't think I could eat anything so adorable, could you? xxxo
