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. ~Edyth O’Neill

A beautiful Easter Sunday in the country. Changes happening.

 Easter was a sweet day with great grandchildren and easter eggs and a picnic lunch. We celebrated a  lovely new family addition, a Thoroughbred mare named Nala, a sweet and smart new ride for Bailey.   A fence between Nala and the already resident mare Dark Spirit,  helps keep the peace as they get used to one another.   

the horses are kept by the house like pet dogs. They come up on the porch and look in if breakfast is late.

I live vicariously in these happy children.  This one is a great little artist!

Dark Spirit checks out the picnic.  

 Not hard to catch!

Nala loves to be loved on.  

Older kids were easily persuaded to hunt eggs as some contained money.    

Macy can rope a little and nine year old Ramsey is learning.  The next week for her  birthday, Bailey received a calf roping dummy for practice which will entertain her two younger sisters.  

Reluctantly I come to what may be the end of my blog, I have met so many nice people over the years right here, thanks to all of you for the dozens of ways you have enriched my life.   At this time I still have a tiny presence on FB, that too is finite.     Warmly, Edyth
