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. 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. 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

Dear Dixie, How is the studio cleaning going for you? Hope you will enjoy the new machine!!?? My friend Eula used to say she had rather break in a new husband (she had 3) than break in a new sewing machine. Studio cleaning going on here also. I have managed to give a way a nice number of books, sorted them out 2 weeks back and have found homes for many with 2 friends. Can give some to the library for next year’s book sale.
I am deep in my paint these days. E
