Hi there! I'm Hajnalka


I am an artist, crafter, passionate photographer, and creator of Bloom & Anchor, dedicated to creating something truly unique for you.
Born and raised in Hungary, after my first move as a young military spouse, I was eager to decorate our first home while making new friends and putting our roots down. It wasn't easy. I was thousands of miles from home, in a country I didn't grow up in, surrounded by a culture with which I wasn't familiar.

Almost two decades as a military spouse and 10+ moves later, I now know that our HOME does not tie us to a specific mailing address; instead, it's a place where we can grow as a family. A space you put your little touches on to make it your own. With every move, we need to make new friends, say goodbye to old ones, grow roots (=anchor), and prosper wherever life takes us (=bloom).

Our military lifestyle and my Hungarian heritage have given me many opportunities to travel and explore, which in return have inspired me to create many of the products I offer in my shop.



Several years ago, a friend asked me to make her a military duty station sign that chronicles their many moves and significant life events. Her absolute joy in seeing the personalized sign inspired me to make one for my family. With over 100 duty station signs and happy customers, I know such a home décor item can quickly become your favorite piece, or as I like to call it, a "true conversation starter".


I create every single item with much love and care, don't cut corners, and don't rush. From my small home studio, I design, create, take photos, pack your item and interact with you. I welcome my customers' input so that I can create something truly unique and meaningful for you.

Thank you for visiting Bloom And Anchor!
