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

more homes tour

More than half of the women wore collections of southwestern jewelry in LAYERS. Don't miss the lovely winter garden. Even the baths and laundry rooms were well decorated. Remember to click on the photos to see them larger. E Look at "older posts" down near the bottom of this page to keep reading these.

  1. Greetings from California! I found your blog by shear accident and suddenly there in front of me were reminders of many, many years ago...my first trip to Fredericksburg! Or was it New England? Your rugs, your home and the work that you and your husband did with such aplomb! Thank you for the memories. I hope you are well and receiving the kudos you deserve!
