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

A bit more active on line

Go look if you like, O'Neill's Antiques & Art (oneillsantiques.blogspot.com)  accessible from the right hand of this blog page.  The site will be heavy on smalls, mostly textiles and dolls that I can mail easily, continental US only.  I also expect to offer some of my own paintings there, both framed and unframed for ease of Mailing.  There are a few hard copies of my rug book listed there.  Today I have listed a sewing roll up. 

Pictured here are some from a few years ago at a workshop event:
