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

Cheryl's paintings

Daughter Cheryl who lives in Colorado is a wildlife artist, and I enjoy it so much when she will mail me a batch of paintings to choose a few for myself. I bought the Bear, the bison, and the fox to keep here. She is getting ready for a spring show in her town in Colorado. The fox family lives in her front yard, where she and husband Glen enjoy them daily and take endless photos. The bear was pictured by a friend in Alaska, who gave permission to use his shot. The bison Cheryl took in Yellowstone and the elk in Zion nat. Forrest. I will offer some of the paintings for a few weeks in our mall booth here in Fburg. E

  1. Wonderful paintings, I love the fox, looks like it is about to walk out of the painting.
