'Up' with Ballard

Apparently the plot of "Up," where an old man refuses to let the city tear down his house and they must build around it, is partially inspired by the home of Edith Macefield in my Seattle neighborhood of Ballard.

Edith died not that long ago, never having given up on her house, which still stands today.

And since this is the week of "Up's" release, her home received an appropriate decoration.
