Tis the Cutemaskah Season

It's Cutemaskah again Cuties, are you ready? We sure are, especially with this vintage chalkware candleholder singing a bit of "tis the season to be Cutemaskah... fa-la-la-la-la" to all of us. Ok, even if it's not really singing, kinda nice to imagine, right? Happy Cutemaskah and Hello There Cuties!!! xxxo

Paper Source Cutie

Sometimes I get a bit sick of all the PC-ness in the world (remember I live in SF!) and smile when I see something that bucks it. When I saw this bottle at Paper Source, a fave store of myself and many friends, I squealed aloud! A wonderful glass bottle with fabulous retro typography and an un-PC (but true) message totally equals Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Tapestry Cuties

Frederique Morrel is a husband/wife team that makes art out of vintage tapestries. What makes their pieces so unique is how very traditional tapestries are re purposed into familiar forms in unexpected ways. From animals to full size humans to metamorphosed creatures, all have one thing in common: they are cute! Hello There Cuties!!! xxxo

thanks for the idea reader Joseph of SF

Super Bunny Colette Cutie

Look what I found at Colette! A plush "Super Rabbit Angel" for just €32. Made by Trousselier, this super bunny (I imagine) fights evil lapin farmers while giving hugs, kisses and of course carrots to French boys and girls. Go Super Bunny... and Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Another I. Magnin Cutie

Day after Thanksgivin, me and my Mom would stand outside at a very early hour waiting for the doors to open at I. Magnin in Sherman Oaks. When the doors parted, there would be a crush of shoppers rushing in to get beautiful clothing at sale prices. I recall many a item bought from there that was a bit too fashion-forward for my Valley schoolmates and looking back, I wish I still had them... Mom had a great eye! xxxo

Unplug Cuties!

I recently read an article about how we are all so plugged-in, people have a tough time when not "connected." It's been leading to shorter attention span, memory and less interaction on personal levels. This upcoming long weekend that we'll all be spending with our friends and families, think about unplugging and interacting... bet you'll have some wonderful experiences! xxxo

Muppet Cuties

This weekend a movie is opening up that I am excited to see: The Muppets! Growing up with these characters, I loved watching them while my Daddy tickled my toes and we sang along to the pop songs each week. And look at how adorable they are... totally Hello There Cuties!!! xxxo

Baaaa Cuties

A friend of Hello There Cutie, Damien, is in New Zealand right now. Seeing these wee lambs (sent in by reader Jesse of SF!) reminded us of this fun NZ fact: the population ratio there is 1 human to every 10 sheep (really!). Now if those sheep are all this adorable, we're getting on a plane to say Hello There Cutie to each and every one of them!!! xxxo

Hot Cocoa Cutie

With the weather getting cooler, makes me think about hot cocoa and wow, do I ever wish my neighborhood barista could make one like this! With those sweet little paws, isn't this just begging you to drink it up? I'd be sad to see it go but would rather be warm... and would have the memory of this cutie to keep me warmer!!! Hello There Cutie! xxxo

Kawaii Shoe Cuties

Look what I found on Etsy cuties! Some adorable mary jane shoes with sweet clouds on them. Lovingly made with rosy red cheeks and hand stitched smiles, I just wish they came in my size (these are size 4 U.S./35 Euro). sigh... well Hello There Cutie kicks anyway! xxxo

Daniel is a Cutie

This cutie is Daniel, also known as the Miracle Dog, relaxing at his new home in Nutley, N.J. The beagle mix got his name after surviving an Alabama dog pound gas chamber. Volunteers named the dog "Daniel" after the biblical figure who survived the lion's den. Daniel was adopted by a family that has other dogs he is happily playing with and is proof of real life fairytales. Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Oriole Cutie

Yesterday it was announced the Baltimore Orioles were updating their logo with this version of the cartoon bird that adorned their caps during the franchise's greatest winning period in the 80s. This cutie is hoping to bring them good luck (thus the big smile) but, as a Cubs fan, I just wish him birdseed. And a Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Sit On A Cutie

One of my friends adores cupcakes and when I saw this sweet seat by Daruma Design in London, I totally thought of her! Ok, so this is supposed to be a muffin but it looks like a big fluffy cupcake to me, just waiting for an extra layer of frosting. Mmmmm... cupcake. Ok, time for a snack break and Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Cuteness Alert at Sephora!!!

I was looking at and look who I ran into: some of tokidoki's cuties! Now to explain... Mozzarella leads the Moofia, a gang assembled to extort milk from the lunchboxes of schoolyard bullies. Mozzarella and the Moofia are loving and kind to good kids, and by taking milk from the bad and giving it to the good, they know the good will grow up strong and healthy to protect themselves. Yummy plus cute = Hello There Cutie!!!

Shamrock Cutie

Yes, it's a football helmet today on Hello There Cutie and looking at it, don't you see why? Notre Dame is wearing these this week for the Shamrock Series game and wow, it's enough to make me a football fan! I wonder if they'll also be wearing any cute leprechaun outfits too? OMG, that would be soooo Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Advent Cutie

It's coming up on advent calendar time of year. Although I didn't grow up with them, I always appreciate a reason to have a chocolate a day! I saw this calendar with it's multi-treat and super adorable graphics and it made me wish I could have my own countdown with treats. Perhaps to the new year instead? Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

Blingin Cutie

I read about this and wow... it had to be brought to you! This is the Diamond Bathtub, which is covered in 44,928 imported pink crystals (and one real diamond). The 19th century-style claw foot bathtub is currently on sale for $39,000 and, as you can see, isn't quite big enough for a grown up to dip into. But have no worries cuties: it's perfect size for either Amelie the bunny or a few bottles of bubbly! After all, it is now holiday shopping season, right? xxxo

Rickshaw Cutie

Here in San Francisco, alot of people ride bikes instead of driving cars to destinations. Being born and bred in LA, I'm not a huge fan of peddling instead of sitting in my vehicle, listening to music while in a warm, dry environment. Now perhaps if I had this super cute rickshaw bike from Anthropologie (and someone to peddle me, of course!) I might be more likely to be out of my VW. That is, on a hot, sunny day of course! Hello There Cuties xxxo

Sleepy Monday Cutie

Between "falling back" and it being a Monday, I sure am groggy. Sleepy from Snow White seems to have the right idea: a nap with his cutie friends! Looking over, Amelie the bunny is already napping so I shall have to whisper a Hello There Cuties to you today. xxxo

Fall Back Cuties

This weekend is my fave nap-enabled date... Daylight Savings Time ends! As a result, we "fall back" and get an extra hours sleep. Extra sleep = happy me. So please don't forget to "fall back" on Sunday and have a wonderful weekend too! xxxo

Party Cuties

Am going to a party tonight at a fancy home dec store in SF and decided to check out their website. Now I don't have a dog (obviously Amelie wouldn't allow it!) but check out these cuties in their special bed. Awwww... it's enough for me to reconsider! Hello There Cuties (times 3) xxxo

Slippers Are Cute

With winter just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about those basics we need anew! In looking at my slippers, it's def time for a refresh but I ponder: back to Restoration Hardware for a pair or do I go cutie? These guys I found on eBay and wow, who wouldn't smile if you looked down at these guys? Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

More Flying Bunny Cuties

Remember when we posted about those Olympian flying bunnies in Germany? Well in Switzerland on Sunday, this cutie (Lada Sipova-Krecova of Czech Republic) won the first European rabbit hopping championships. Rabbit hopping is a growing trend among rabbit owners in Central Europe to which Amelie and I both agree... as long as the bunnies are happy in this hoppy, they get a big Hello There Cutie!!! xxxo

thanks for the story Damien!!!
