Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Vintage Raige

Introducing Vintage Raige - the newest section at Raige Creations.
Vintage Teapot

I absolutely love vintage things. Similar to my ove for fabrics that have lived other lives, and are made into something else, the stories of things of the past are so intriguing. Vintage items have character, and some even personality.  And they are things that you can't find at your discount department store.

So I am very happy to share the items from years of collecting, items that are unusual, interesting, and have great stories behind them. 

Antique Bee Smoker c. 1907
This Bee Smoker was a great find, and I was thrilled to find out the history of the company that made bee keeping supplies since the late 1800's.  The A.I. Root Company, founded by Mr. Amos Ives Root in 1865, began by Mr. Root offering a coworker a dollar for a swarm of bees as they passes overhead. From there he developed a thriving business providing innovative bee keeping supplies to bee keepers from all over, and eventually beeswas candles.  The candle business is still going strong today, run by his great-great grandson. They ahve a great video from 1919 with some interesting views of beeking here - click on the video that is on the right.  The current candlemaking business is shown in the video on the left. It is worth the look!

Morton Salt Mugs
As I was writing this, actually, I found out the Morton Salt Girls I just listed have made it into a treasury - the first time Raige Creations has been selected for one.  Everyone seems to have strong feelings about rainy days, and everyone knows the saying "when it rains it pours". It is so true.

Stay tuned as more Vintage Raige finds appear in the coming weeks.
