The Inside of Jeannie's Bottle

"My dream home is no longer Jeannie's bottle. It's this."
Jack Macfarland, Will & Grace, Season 3, Episode 13

I loved watching I Dream of Jeannie when I was a kid and I felt the same way as Jack Macfarland did...that Jeannie's bottle was the ultimate in luxury. I imagined there were other, dreamier, parts of the bottle, but as the pic shows, nope!, that was it.

Seeing just a portion of it, like this, you can see why I imagined a totally feminine, out of this world, riot of luxury and colour.
Ah, the magic of television.

Anyway...that is what Jeannie's Bottle always implied to me:
comfort, colour, luxury, personality and individuality. The place where each person is the most comfortable, in surroundings expressing their own essence.

That is what I strive to create in my own home and that is why I am at my most content when I am there.


  1. I loved Jeannie's bottle too. It's funny, but it never occurred to me that it was so small. Great photo of it being used in filming.
