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

Sometimes you have to see my grandchild!

Bailey is having a lovely summer in Wyoming working on a ranch with trail rides for guests.  The picture she sent picking flowers on her horse  just touched my heart!   How wonderful to be 20.   e

 The Blue roan's name is Bullet,  Bailey loves him.  Hers for the summer.

Beautiful scenery near Jackson Hole.


  1. Oh as a kid I'd have loved to be where she is. I did own a horse once and before turning 16 my father sold him without my knowledge. Didn't know he was being sold until I came home from school and Richie was loaded up in a truck and tethered. I cried my eyes out.

  2. Warmed my heart! She is so lovely and blessed.

  3. What an absolutely beautiful grand daughter you have. A blessing for sure!
