Up, Up and Away!

You know when something inspires me... I suddenly become so incredibly absorbed and obsessed in a way I can only describe as finding your true love. Disney Pixar films have always had the ability to enchant me, right from the start, I’ve long been a Toy Story fan, and will always be fond of such amazing characters.
I always get attached to the sweet nature of these films, and when I sat down and watched UP for the very first time, this warm feeling of love came rushing over me and I just knew this was going to be a good one.



And from that moment on, I just had to track down a Grape Soda badge, just like the one Ellie owned, so I too could wear it with pride and treasure it amongst my most fond possessions.
The search took me all over the world (via the World Wide Web) and I stumbled upon many a replica and home-made version, but it was this one that I set my heart on owning. Simply because it’s retro appeal had me right from the start. It came all the way from America, from this incredibly whimsical Etsy Shop.

I am quite so taken by this little connection to such a wonderful little film.

  3. Awwwww that badge is so cute! UP was the first film that Pyf and I saw at the cinema together and it was in 3D! He got it for me for Christmas in 2010 and we've watched it a couple of times since - but not for a while.. now you've made me want to huddle up and watch it again! It's such a lovely heart warming story. I'm glad you managed to find the perfect badge! xxx

  13. Aw, thanks Alice! So glad you like the badge! And, I LOVE that movie as well. I'm pretty sure it's my favorite animated film. *happy sigh*
    (When I saw the movie in the theatre, I immediately knew I had to find a way to make these badges. They were simply too precious & held such a special meaning: adventure & love.)
