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

  1. Edyth dear ~ I have not been far removed and follow your blog with
    the same enthusiasm, if not more. I thoroughly enjoyed your painting
    entry....my goodness, your talents have no bounds. Please let us
    know when you propose to put some on Etsy... I am now completing the
    Mary Slatter sampler and it is a humdinger...but gives such a sense
    of accomplishment after completing each motif... Guess you are getting ready for your usual holiday décor and I am forever grateful
    to you for the idea of using my antique sled bedecked in greenery, fruits and pinecones atop the island..it never fails to get
    compliments, thanks to Edyth. Wishing you good health and well being
    dear Lady Edyth.
