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

Greiner dolls at the party









All of these dolls have the early 1858 labels, not extended 72. The tiny ones are the rare size zero Greiners in blue dress and small white dress. The one in pink is a very nice brown eyed Greiner. The large doll in white is a splendid 34 inches tall, with a sought after hair style. All of these were brought by guests to share. Edyth

  1. This looks like a wonderful party. I'm just starting to learn about these dolls. I'm sorry I wasn't there.
