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

Massachusetts beautiful

Peggy, one of my hostesses met me at Boston Logan airport along with her husband Dennis, a man after my own heart. He had put his favorite bear in my room to keep me company. They moved my things into Peggy's sister Cathy's lovely guest house. Peggy and Dennis have a precious early gambrel home known as the house at the head of the cove and it is featured with many pictures inside and out in the white pine series books.

A drive around Cape Ann followed by dinner completed a long but sweet day.

  1. Oh it sounds like you're having a wonderful time, Edyth! I'll get working on those dollies while you're away. :~)
