Countdown to Parade Day:

Jeannie Bottle


Kelly Blakely

About the Entry:

Inspired by the 1960s t.v. show "I Dream of Jeannie" and energized by the lessons in the video "The Secret," The Jeannie Bottle Art Car is both a symbol and a physical manifestation of prayer. Using primarily found objects or recycled items, friends and craftspeople contributed their various talents to transform a donated, wrecked 1991 Volvo station wagon into a fantasy vision made real. The Jeannie Bottle Art Car reminds us that through our thoughts and words, we call the energy of the Universe into action. And like the making of this art car, the best life is an exercise in community and sharing and a constant process of learning and invention. Its creators encourage all of you who hear this message to "Be Your Own Jeannie & Live Your Dreams!"
