Oregon Cute!

A friend of mine was recently in Bend, Oregon for a wedding and saw this sign! I adore the J. Lo bootie on the squirrel and that the sign is written for them, not us humans. Which brings up the question: Did you know squirrels can read? (tee hee) Hello There Cutie!!!   xxxo

Sonoma Cutie

Sorry for the absence cuties... been in work and not adorable-land. But look who brought me back: Mugly! Driving back to SF from Sonoma yesterday, the traffic was awful and I wondered why. Well, in addition to a big Nascar thingie it was the World's Ugliest Dog contest at the Sonoma-Marin County Fair. Mugly, the winner, is a Chinese Crested dog from the UK and I gotta confess: he's so ugly he's kinda Hello There Cutie to me!   xxxo

Playground Cutie

I might be seeing my little friend Anouk tonite and whenever I do, my mind goes straight to playing. This playground is La Laguna Playground in San Gabriel so a bit far to drive, darnit! What makes this p-ground so cool is that instead of traditional equipment, it's populated by 14 concrete monster sculptures instead. Built in a sand-filled lagoon in 1965, it was designed by Mexican artist Benjamin Dominguez and saved from demolition in 2006. I read all about the La Laguna here, and it's a fascinating read if you have a chance. Hello There Cutie!   xxxo

Salty Cutie

I went walking down to Clement Street yesterday and stoppped by my fave Japanese supermarket: Super TokioWhile there, I saw this guy above and immediately thought this would be a great solution for the ordinary salt on my shelf. Well, it's not ordinary salt, as the owner told me when I went to purchase this Ajinomoto salt, it's a special MSG salt. (yeeech) So now I ponder: if I went back and washed out the container then I could use it for my boring salt? Hello There Cutie!   xxxo

I'm Baaack Cuties!

Sorry for the lack of posts this week Cuties... have been under deadline and all my creative-brain has been needed there. That said, last pm I was chatting with my eldest brother and the subject of ice cream came up. It is both of our "go to" treats, something I never knew. If only the ice cream in our freezers looked like these: big smiles on adorable faces, I don't think we would eat our fave treats... I'd for sure just be smiling at 'em! Hello There Cuties!!!   xxxo

Jubilee Wee Cutie

Hello There Cutie has Jubilee fever but how can't we (or is the wee?) with this tea towel? Ok, perhaps not the most proper thing but isn't it just fun and funny? I adore how the flag is in the background of the lettering, and the typography is really wonderful and trend right. Ok, and very Hello There Cutie right too!!!   xxxo

06/06 Cuties

Today is 06/06 which brought to mind the classic Multiplication Rock episode "I Got Six." You know how it goes, right cuties? "I got six... That’s all there is..." with a fabulous 70's-esque soul-funk beat. Oh no, looks like Beiber's "Baby" will be out of rewind in my brain today (hooray!) but instead will be hearing the cartoon kids singing about the number six instead: Hello There Cuties!!!   xxxo

Don't know the song? Go here

Clipper is known for both their adorable packaging and fine teas; add in that these have an illustration theme based upon one of my fave books of all time (Alice in Wonderland) this deserves a queen-size Hello There Cutie!!!   xxxo
