Footsie Cutie

One of my girlfriend's texted me the cutest photo of her baby: he has discovered grabbing his feet is fun. When I saw this sweet pamphlet called "Proper Care of Babys Feet" from 1955, I pondered getting it for them... but the Cuties on the cover distracted me too much. Awww... Hello There Cuties! xxxo

Paul Smith Cutie-ness

Every designer I know has, at one time or another, carried a Rhodia notepad. The fab British clothing guru Paul Smith has carried one for years and designed a series of covers for them. Although the iconic orange notepads are sold out, this black one featuring a major cutie reading (along w/the PS stripes) has caught my eye indeed. Hello There Cutie! xxxo

It's (the continuation of) Cutie Packaging Week!

My Grandma Helen used to have a philosophy about stocks that went like this "Buy what you like." Simple enough, right? Well, following in her steps I own a tiny bit of stock in Coca Cola. Why? Because it's the only thing that calms my tummy when upset, so I want to support it. And they have beyond Cutie packaging like this!!! xxxo

Fabric Cuties

In looking around for trends (gotta know 'em) I often get side-lined by things that catch my eye. Then if there's a Cutie angle, watch out!!!

Day of the Dead Cutie

Today is Day of the Dead, and this Cutie take on the art for it is by the Canadian illustrator Christina Patterson. Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) is a gathering to pray for/remember friends and family members who are no longer with us in parades, at shrines or even alone. If there is a celebration in your town, I highly recommend going. xxxo
