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's Christmas Party

On the 14th of January, after all just a week past "Old Christmas" Our Antique study group 16 of us in all, met here and the topic was old dolls. Of course many of us attending are old dolls ourselves, but let's not go there. It was a fun party and having one of my daughters, plus her daughter and her daughter! here made it even more special. We are packing away all the Christmas decor now. Here are some pictures to share. I did not even show the feather trees! The dolls have 3, and are quite proud of them with all the old ornaments. I have enjoyed Christmas photos some of you have shared with me too! E
