I Dream Of Jeannie Horses Wall Art


Fresh Pickings ~ February 17, 2012

I just have to share this fabulous piece of retro vintage wall art story that links back to the TV Show “I Dream Of Jeannie” (1965-1970).  Last year, I started setting up our DVR to begin recording many retro TV Shows to watch for enjoyment but also to look at the set designs to help me spot items that I may find when out picking.  Between my recordings of Family Affair, Mary Tyler Moore and The Brady Bunch, I also recorded and watched the TV series “I Dream of Jeannie”.  Toward the end of the season of the show,  when Jeannie marries Major Nelson, and they return from their honeymoon there is an episode where Jeannie decides to redecorate their groovy home.  The new set design was a MOD Mid Century Modern dream and I was instantly drawn to a large orange (orange being my favorite color ever) Horse wall Art piece now featured on the show at the bottom of the stairs as seen in screen shot image.

Then fast forward to February of this year, while out picking, I hit a small thrift store in a rural town and there it sat. The wall art was large with vibrant hues of orange and 2 standing groovy horses in a wooden frame signed by artist – Lee Burr.  The same wall art I remembered from the TV Show “I Dream Of Jeannie.” After some research I learned that like many groovy wall art pieces from the 1950s -1970s, this was a mass produced piece distributed by Turner Wall Accessories. I am so excited to own this groovy vintage replica and I love having it hang in our living room in the Mod Squad Picking pad.  My rule with picking is that I only buy what I love and I list all my picking finds for sell. So this piece is listed in the Mod Squad Picking shop – just with the “crazy I love it” price!

My Lee Burr Horse wall Art has sold. I truly love all the items that I pick ~ It’s my rule, pick with you love – so if I am stuck with it, I can love/enjoy it. I have really enjoyed this MID Century Modern Lee Burr Horse Wall Art (as seen in the TV Series “I Dream Of Jeannie” living room decor), but alas it has now sold and will be loved by another. ♥

Groovy 1960s Go-Go Girls Wall Art

I am often asked what is my most memorable or favorite picking find?  I now have that answer! I scored this rare 4-piece set of Paul Detlefsen 1967 Go-Go Girls wall art last month from an estate auction and I am crushing and loving on them.  These were produced in the late 1960s and mass produced by Turner wall Accessories in both a small 9” size and this large 30” height size.  There have been a few of the individual pieces found and sold, but to score a full large set of 4 makes them an exceptional rare find. Each groovy Go-Go girl is dated and imprint signed by artist, Paul Detlefsen, and I have to say that they are to die for. It’s one of those beloved finds that if they do not sell, I will not be heart-broken, and will be retro happy to have them.

I like to refer to them as interns in the Mod Squad Picking office where they hang and dance and keep the mojo flowing during my work hours as I list other groovy merch!

I think most of you know I PICK by one rule ~ pick and buy only what I love. So if I am stuck with something I love it or while I am waiting to find a new MOD home, I can enjoy it. Well the time has come – my beloved 1967 Go-Go Girl wall art pieces have sold. They have been hanging/dancing in the MOD Squad Picking office all year long ~ now they will be packed and shipped to a new groovy home in New Jersey!  ♥
