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

Pie in the Turkey pan!

Here is a big one, double the recipe given a few days back. Jack peeled peaches nearly 2 hours for it. The end of the local peach crop is just about here, this may be our last peach cobbler for the year. The pan is about 11 by 17.
Before it went in the oven, you can see how the top is covered with 4 bought pie crusts cut up and layered slightly as needed to cover completely. Some years back I stopped making home made pie crust, but still miss it a bit. With sugar and butter and cinnamon added, this one is pretty good! Serve warm with ice cream.

The next pies we will make are likely pumpkin ones. I am ready for a turn towards fall. The weatherman said yesterday we will have 6 more weeks of this extreme heat and drought! But what does he know anyway? e


  1. Looks delicious! I'm ready for fall and pumpkin pies myself!

  2. Oh boy, you just brought back memories of my Mamaw and her summer peach cobblers! Yours looks fabulous and my mouth is watering!

  3. YUM! Looks so good!

    We are also having extreme heat and I'm ready for Fall! Summer is never my favorite anyway, but this brutal heat has been awful this year.

    Take care & stay cool!
