Flying Cutie Bunnies

Sent to us by two Cutie readers, we had to post a flying bunny! This adorable little guy is jumping in a high hurdles event at the Open Rabbit Sport Tournament in Rommerz, Germany. Wait, did you know there's an Open Rabbit Sport Tournament? Me either... sounds like something to investigate cuties! And a big Hello There Cutie to this sweet lop eared athlete. xxxo

thx to both Brenda and Alan for sending us this flying cutie!

Mr. Potato Head Cutie

As we all know, Mr. Potato Head is a major cutie (witness all those Toy Story films for proof!). I'm going to be seeing my beloved (and beleaguered) Chicago Cubs play tonite and look what I came across... Mr. PH himself as a Cubbie!!! I adore that he has not chewing tobacco but bubble gum and a big smile in anticipation of a win against the Giants. Hello There Cutie and Go Cubs! xxxo

Chow Chow Cutie

The Chow Chow is an old breed dog that has appeared on Chinese pottery dating back to 206 BC. Its Chinese name is Songshi Quan meaning literally “puffy-lion dog.” A friendly and protective pup, the Chow can cost anywhere between $1,000 and $8,500 and is worth every penny for being so adorable. Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Cutie Sponges

What are these adorable animals? Sponges of course! Found at Daiso in Japantown SF, I wanted to begin scrubbing away right there in the aisle. Sadly, the little froggy and his friends had to wait til we got home and we had a sink full of dishes. And if I might say, what fun washing dishes can be with a Cutie!!! xxxo

Blythe Sweet Lolita Cutie

Blythe is a cutie without a doubt. Add in a version that is dressed up like a sweet Lolita, make it double cutie. Sparkly boots, fishnets and the worlds most adorable hat make her today's biggest Hello There Cutie! xxxo

Piggy Bank Cutie

Who is this little guy? It's a vintage piggy bank I found online that made me squeal in happiness! Little piggy appears to be from the 60's or 70's by the typography that is pinned to his sweet little behind. He seems to be looking at the note too. Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Italian Car Cutie

Another cutie car! This one is a Fiat 500 Jolly Ghia, which was made between 1958 and 1966 as a resort car for vacationers. Besides having sweet wicker seats, they came in colors like coral, pink, pale yellow, sky blue and white. The Fiat Jolly was also known as La Spiaggina or the beach-ette... altho I think the Jolly is a superior name! Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Gucci Cutie

Gucci is releasing this Fall a line for kids that spans from clothing to accessories to everything in-between. In looking this over, I of course found the most Cutie appro item: a "zoo" tote. Now I can't figure out what kind of bird this is (must be Italian as it's Gucci) but I do know this: it's frickin a-dor-able!!! Hello There Cutie! xxxo

Jump Rope Cuties

Tuesday and Thursday are boot(ie)camp mornings, and one of my fave activities is when we jump rope. Unlike these cuties, I don't get to do doubles but I do always sing a song when skipping. Usually I sing "Miss Mary Max" but after seeing these jumpers, I might need to switch to a doubles tune instead... that is, if I can find a willing accomplice. xxxo

French Fry Cuties

Tonite is another bday month dinner and this one is at a spot that is renowned for its roast chicken with french fries (can you guess what SF institution it is cuties?). I'm really looking forward to those string cut fries. And pondering getting this adorable french fry coin purse so I can have fries everyday and without the guilt! Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Jesse the Jack Russell Cutie

Today's posting is brought to us by Jesse, the Jack Russell cutie who is probably one of the smartest pets ever (sorry Emme!). Between pushing a grocery cart, putting stuff away and even answering the phone, I think this is a most useful pet ever. And he's an adorable Jack Russell! Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Cutie Dogs

Reader Damien of SF sent us this great image of a search and rescue dog in Jackson Hole. K-9 rescue dogs can really be man’s best friend in the mountains. Per “In the rugged Grand Teton backcountry of Wyoming, dogs are more than pets.” Pets plus lifesavers plus darn adorable... well Hello There Cuties!!! xxxo

thx for the posting idea Damo

Older and Wiser Cutie

Another year older... another year wiser... This owl watercolor (done on an old book page) attracted me for two reasons. First, the old saying. Second, it's wearing a crown so spoke to my inner (and sometimes outer) princess who is now older/wiser/etc. Ok, third (real) reason: it's really cute! Hello There Cutie xxxo

It's My Cutie Bday!!!

Happy b-day to me... Happy b-day to me... I wonder if an juggling elephant will show up at my door? If not mine, perhaps the door of fellow 08/08 b-day girl Tink? Either way, it'll be a Hello There Cutie kinda day, that's for sure!!! xxxo

Hearst Cutie

Another posting from my Hearst Castle adventure last week... this cutie was seen on the ceiling inside the indoor Roman pool house. The entire building is super ornate and detailed, so it was funny to spy such a primitive illustrated tile peering down at me. His smile is sweet yet those eyes kinda sinister... well, whether good or evil I say Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Girly Bday Cutie

My secret girly side emerges... I love flowers on my birthday. They make the day seem even more special! Next best thing to flowers? A vintage French card from the 50's with a wish for the "smell of a birthday." Ok, to me that means cupcakes and all my faves but hey, if it's flowers I'll take that too. And Hello There Cutie on a card! xxxo

Cherub Cutie

A break from bday postings for a Hearst Castle cutie! This cherub statue, riding a fish and mocking a "shooting arrow" pose (doesn't that sound like a yoga position?) is at the pool of the main house. I adore the innocence of his expression and, as a sucker for baby bellies, his little tummy. Aww, Hello There Cutie! xxxo

Sneezy Bday Cuties

Fog gives me allergies (yet I live in San Francisco?). Anyway, the allergies have driven me bonkers so am down the coast in Cambria being a good tourist: Hearst Castle here I come! In the meantime, here are some bday cuties I would love to see in my mailbox (wouldn't you?) upon my return tomorrow. Hello There Cuties! xxxo
