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

Rufus Porter Museum this summer

Last week The mail brought me a brochure listing classes in the 2012 Cultural Heritage series at this delightful small museum in Maine. Floor cloth painting looks like something I would enjoy, and there is a nice rug hooking class with Jacqueline Hansen, a top teacher. But it is the class on Rufus Porter Style wall murals I would love to take!  Not much chance I will get to Maine this July, but my heart will be there.  Check out the opportunities , I do not see 2012 events on the web yet, (they may well be there) email is rufusportermuseum@myfairpoint.net  .

There are lovely small museums all over New England.. another favorite of ours is the one in Lebanon Connecticut.  So much to enjoy for us who love art and antiques and New England's history.   Edyth
