I’m sure you’ve all heard a story about a home owner who just won’t sell to make way for progress (usually in the form of a parking garage, department store, or condominiums). There is just such a house in Seattle, whose owner Edith Macefield has now passed on, and someone got the bright idea to get some publicity for the upcoming Pixar flick ‘UP’ by tying a bunch of balloons on it as you’ve seen on the movie posters.
How it turns out was not quite as magical as they hoped.
(thanks to W Sairah for the link who said “The story of this house is also very much like that of the Disney short, The Little House”)
The real life house is in Berkeley, CA, off 6th Street
Ahh man that sucks I was gonna take my daughter there on saturday and show her the place with the balloons. Was really looking forward to it!
