Antique and White

About eleven years ago, I met Sidney. Sidney owned a company called Country House Fabrics in Camarillo, California. We started a great business relationship which then became a fun friendship. I would run in to Sidney and her friend Sandi at all lthe flea markets. We had an understanding when we ran into each other that if I don't spend much time with you at the flea markets is because I don't want to miss ANYTHING. Over the years, our lives have changed. Sidney sold her company and I sold my store. We continued to stay in touch. When I found out that Sidney and Sandi were selling at shows, I invited her to Remnants. I love these two! They are so much fun. The only thing is that they set up their booth so quickly so that they can shop the show while everyone else is still setting up. I have learned that I need to stay ten steps ahead of that pair! You will love their style. They find the real deal in antique white furniture. None of the quickly painted white stuff here. They also collect the unusual in smalls and you will find many of the pieces from their homes that only live there for a couple of months. I am proud to say that I have a part of Sidney and Sandi in my home right now.

Here is Sidney on the right. Isn't she adorable! I love this girl.


Love the zinc topped table and the glass. Be sure to stop by and say hi to Sidney and Sandi.



  1. I really want that zinc table :)
    Just wanted to let you know that I left you an award on my blog..I really appreciate you sharing your life with us.

  2. Uh, I do LOVE that zinc topped table!!!

  3. Oh my gosh! I have often wondered what happened to Sydney! Years ago I used to buy her wonderful pillow when she owned Country House Fabrics. I would always get a kick out of her because even though I was just a "store" placing an order and we never actually met, she would always call me "dear", like I'm sure she did everyone. I found her charming and there has been a "pillow hole" in my shop ever since!
    So glad to see she's looking great and having fun.
