Bye Edith

Edith Macefield died earlier this week. She was 86. Edith refused to sell her teeny Ballard house to developers back in 2001. So the developers have been building around her house. It's in many ways a real-life version of this Disney cartoon. Except Edith never got married or had kids. And the house can't blush, as far as I can tell. Or blink. Um, and it doesn't have a nose.

I loved this woman's tiny house! I drive or bike by and would nearly applaud. Who controls her estate?

Good question. None of the coverage I've seen thus far indicates who controls it. She doesn't have any kids or family, based on what the P-I says.
