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 loved antique dolls. They have been back ground music in my life at every stage, sometimes louder, sometimes subdued, but always there with me.

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

Doll Note cards ready for giving

All images copyright Edyth O'Neill 2007.

For the past few weeks I have had a great time painting some of the dear little 18th century wooden dolls called Queen Anns. Four of the little heads just called out to be used on note cards, so here they are, in very limited supply, and printed on the finest Hammermill ivory card stock. For $12 you will receive six cards and envelopes (four different). That is $10 for the cards and $2 per set for mailing them. The cards are 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches. Each one represents my copyrighted painting of an 18th century doll. My friend Hellen has been urging me to make note cards from some of my doll paintings for a long time, I hope you enjoy them! You may send $12 by paypal to joneill816@austin.rr.com or send a check to me at 2155 Lightstone, Fredericksburg TX 78624 Texas residents must add $1 sales tax. Thank you, E
