Welcome to my world!
Le Shop is a small collection of curated goods, some are mine, some are not. All are unique and charming. The Lindsey Foard items for sale on my site have been such a labor of love to make! I’d love for you to take a peek and let me know what you think!
Le Blog is for the dreamers, the makers, the DIY-ers. It’s my way of capturing and collecting beautiful treasured moments in time, delicious morsels and landscapes that amaze. Be it through shared stories, recipes or images I hope you are as inspired and delighted as I am. But this is a two way street and I really hope that you’ll share too. Don’t be shy!
It’s a small shop, a blog & fantastical destination all rolled into one. Everyone is invited to my table, so pull up a seat, grab a glass of wine or three and stay awhile. I’m so glad you’re here!
THE PERSON/MY STORY
At the ripe age of 15, I decided that after my high school graduation I was moving to Los Angeles. It was as quick and as simple as that. I had never been to LA and I didn’t know a single soul who lived there but my mind was set. When the time came to go I was terrified, but I did it anyway. And I was rewarded with my first introduction to magic! An hour after I stepped off the airplane I met the love of my life and one of my best girlfriends. The point is, there is magic to be found in the unknown, lots of it!
I’m Lindsey, book devourer, nap-taker, Francophile, wanderlust-er and foodie. (Who isn’t these days?) What I am not is one of those people who have always known what they want to do. Not even close. In fact, I’m their polar opposite. So I’ve spent the last few years trying to figure out how to shape a career out of only an innate desire to create. Having no clue how to make the creative life work for me, I flailed spectacularly. And then just for good measure I flailed a bit more.
It became clear that I needed another dose of magic. So again I walked out on a precipice, and peaked over the edge. And that’s when I learned…..NEVER look over the edge! It’s best to just get a good running start and hurl yourself over. Take a flying leap!
Et voila! Lindsey Foard was born! I created an outlet for my passions and energy and then decided to share it with the world. It’s a place of my own where I let the light in. Where I stop to smell the roses. Where I savor the sweetness of life. Where at last, I am fulfilled by the work that I do.
So this is me, mid-jump & it’s where my story begins.
