I. Magnin Cutie

I just discovered the work of classic SF photographer Fred Lyon. Back in the 50's and 60's, he captured slices of SF (and Parisian) life as it was back then, with an eye for the beauty of the everyday. This scene caught my fashionista eye as it is in front of the old I. Magnin store (now Louis Vuitton) in Union Square, where a flower stand still stands today. This woman, so chic in a Grace Kelly way, seems to be wishing for a gardenia to grace her jacket... I hope she gets one! Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Nibble Nibble Cutie!

With the holidays just around the corner, it's time to begin stretching our limits for all those yummy once a year treats. This little guy looks to have his mouth ever so slightly full... perhaps he too is readying for the season? Perhaps bringing some kernels home for the kids? Or is that corn just so good he can't stop? Well, either way, Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

thanks to reader Joseph from SF for the adorable photo!

Lance is a Cutie

I am a bit under the weather (injury) and cranky today so needed a smile... and what better then a rollicking theme song? Lancelot Link was a fave of my big brothers and I, and just rehearing this after so many years brought a huge smile to my little monkey-ish face. But I'll leave it for you to dance along for me, ok Cuties? xxxo

Bear-y Cutie

I'm still in a pumpkin mood, and who wouldn't be after seeing this one? A sweet bear made of pumpkins n gourds with his honey pot! With his sweet face and knitted scarf, this little guy would be a treat to see on Halloween pm. I wonder if honey candies are given out at the house he's guarding? Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Anouk's a Cutie

This was a weekend of adventures Cuties... One of my fave experiences was driving down the coast with my friend Anouk (seen above) and her parents to a pumpkin farm in Half Moon Bay. The farm we went to still has many on the vine, and Anouk and I ran thru the fields finding the perfect ones. Next up? Carving and pumpkin seeds! Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Mondrian Cutie

I'm off to SFMoMA this afternoon and pondering if I should get a slice of my fave cute dessert there: the Mondrian cake. Make to look like the iconic "Composition in Red, Blue and Yellow" these squares of different cakes are sliced and held together with yummy frosting. Art or dessert? C'mon, you know the answer! Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Zebra Cutie

After reading about all those beautiful exotic animals that were kept by a man in Ohio, I felt it proper to pay homage to one of the cutest: the zebra! Besides its adorable stripes, the zebra always seems to have something going on behind his eyes. I used to draw often at the zoo, and the zebra's always knew that when the sketchpad came out to stand still for me. Hello There Cuties!!! xxxo

Hump Day Cuties

It's Hump Day (as we used to giggle about in junior high) and here's another adorable image sent to us by Joseph in SF. Today we have a scene that is near and dear to my heart: a cat napping atop a dogs back. Why near and dear? Because it reminds me of Pussyfoot and Marc Antony (who we have talked about here) and I'm squealing inside that this is real. Hello There Cuties!!! xxxo

Take Me Away To Cutie-ville...

I was talking with someone I work with about how today is kinda weird... people are driving freaky, those I chat with are off and overall there's something in the air. On a day like today, there's only one answer: take me away to Cutie-ville! This theme park is from our friends at Sanrio and wow, just looking at it makes me happy already. Perhaps a carousel ride is in my future for a pick-me-up? Hello There Cuties! xxxo

Barbie the tokidoki Cutie

This weekend Doug and I went into a fave teenage store of mine called Aaahs (in the Valley, of course). And look who was there to greet us: tokidoki Barbie!!! Check out that pink mini, leopard leggings & black Flashdance top with a tokidoki skull heart and bones she's rocking. This fashionista also has tattoos (my how Barbie has changed) and a pink bob to boot. With her cactus friend, Bastardino, by her side, Barbie’s totally beyond Hello There Cutie! xxxo

Columbus Day Cuties

Happy Columbus Day (aka no mail and school today!). These children are in their costumed finery for a Columbus Day Parade in the 1920s. I didn't know that Uncle Sam was on the Nina, Pinta or Santa Maria (how did I remember those?) but one thing I do know for a fact is this: these kids are adorable!!! Hello There Cuties! xxxo

Encino Cutie

Am going to be down in the Valley this weekend visiting both my family and fellow cutie Doug. In looking for the perfect image, I pondered before arriving on this one: me 3 days old, held by my Grandma Helen while my two brothers check me out. Rumor has it they were disappointed I wasn't a boy but hey, I don't throw like a girl!!! xxxo

Charuca Kawaii Cuties

Looks like one of our fave Hello There Cutie artists has a new book out! The Spaniard Charuca (who we've written of here and here) has just had his work published by Harper Collins in a book called "I Love Kawaii." I haven't been able to see the inside yet but based upon the cover and his adorable work, we already send out a big Hello There Cutie to it!!! xxxo

Wino Cuties

Wine isn't necessarily cute but sometimes the labels can be... and here's a great example! This little winery out of Canada is doing labels with illustrations that tell a story and make you smile. This one is a wedding that I'm wondering what the heck is going on? Well, whatever it is, congrats and Hello There Cuties!!! xxxo

Uni is a Cutie

Todays cutie is Uni the unicorn from the 1980's Saturday morning cartoon Dungeons and Dragons. The show was based on the role playing game and was pretty violent for a morning show. Luckily, for cute relief, there was Uni, a baby unicorn that was the pet of a kid named Bobby. Uni had the ability to speak, though her words were not understandable to our mere mortal ears. It's ok Uni, you're still a Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

thanks for the posting idea reader Donie from Oakland!

Mosquito Proof Kitty Cutie

When I was in Puerto Rico last winter, we went swimming in bioluminescent water (top 10 cool experience). As the spot we swam is called Mosquito Bay, it was recommended we wear mosquito bracelets. I of course lost mine (bad eco-warrior!) but I wonder if I had be wearing one one those above, my experience might have been different. After all, how could I ever lose something so adorable? And yes, those really are mosquito proof bracelets! Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

You can buy Hello Kitty mosquito bracelets here
