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

Hear Hear!

I am thrilled to have a new hearing aid! Walmart has them in the pharmacy department, just under 400 with the tax, made in USA, guaranteed. So now I can hear instructions better in an art workshop or other group setting. One I priced last month is doubtless very fine, but 7000$. This one has 4 settings and is totaly comfortable. Love it! At present I am wearing it full time, except at a music event last night which was way too loud even without the extra boost. Share this with friends and relatives who may need this to stay connected with life. I believe there are many like myself who would benifit from one. This is the case where a general level of sound needs to be amplified, not for specific ranges or special needs. Have a Great Day! Edyth


  1. Welcome to the 'hearing aid bunch'!I received mine several months ago. It is nice to be able to hear the sounds of life again!

  2. Bless your heart on the
    hearing aid information.
    Me thinks the world has gone
    mad ($7,000.?) in the profit

  3. Thanks for the info! Mom's companion, Gene, bought one from a mail order company for about the same price and has dropped it in a box it was so worthless. I'll tell him about this one.
