Welcome to My Red Cape. Long ago in another time my husband Jack and I lived in a little old red house. It was the stuff of dreams to us for the few years that we were there. I live there still a number of hours every day in imagination, with old dolls and paintings and fabrics and feather trees. I draw inspiration and happiness from the memories of that space in time and share some of it here with friends who remember how to step with Alice through the looking glass and take delight in whimsies and antiquities.

For more than sixty years I have studied, collected, repaired, and bought and sold antique dolls. They have been back ground music in my life at every stage, sometimes louder, sometimes subdued, but always there with me. To see only the posts about dolls on this blog, click the banner on the right titled Dolls for My Red Cape. Keep clicking “Older Posts” to see more. Some of the posts featuring rug hooking are gathered under the banner For Cathy. From time to time items are offered for sale under the banner “O’Neill’s Antiques” which was our shop name for many years. ~Edyth O’Neill

a rug workshop here!

Trish Travis of Country Gatherings, organised a group to come from San Antonio to Fredericksburg for 3 consecutive days and hook all together at my house. We had a rich good time of it, packing as much as possible into our time together and some lovely rugs were well started by the time the 10 of them went home on the final day. Color is a high joy for me! My Daughter Beth made one of her lovely pound cakes and Penny made a memorable Italian Cream cake, so we did not lack for refreshment! Edyth
