Hi there! I'm Hajnalka

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, surrounded by culture I wasn't familiar with.  

Almost 2 decades as a military spouse and 10+ moves later, I now know, that HOME is not tied to a specific mailing address, rather, 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, as well as my Hungarian heritage, have also 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 important life events. Her absolute joy in seeing the personalized sign inspired me to make one for my family as well. With well over 100 duty station signs and happy customers, I know such a home décor item can easily 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. I don't cut corners. I don't rush.  From my small home studio I design, create, take photos, pack you item and interact with you. I  welcome customers' input so that I can create something that's truly unique and meaningful for you.

Thank you for visiting Bloom And Anchor!

xoxo,

Hajnalka
