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

Classic car show

There is a never ending round of things to see and do in our busy little burg. Our Markplatz park in the town's center was a shady relaxed venue for the Masons to hold a show of old cars last weekend. There was art walk on Friday night with a dozen galleries open, and the car show on Saturday and Hondo's on Sunday after church. In addition I did a number of other things  on those three days also! 

The Masons do so much good with the money they raise in various ways, the car show was free to happy folk just strolling around looking at all these great rides. The entry fees from exhibitors and the sales of barbeque and beverages brought in a nice little sum for the Masons as well as giving a lot of people a good time. A win win thing.  So much is free to enjoy here!

Always plenty of music. There were tables and chairs in shade here.

There were about a hundred and thirty cars entered.

I sat with friends behind their pretty Corvette.  e
