About Us



Hi! My name is Aislinn Thornell, and I am the founder and owner of The Blooming Anchor, LLC. I am a God-fearing, loving woman whose main goal in life is to share God's love. I was born and raised Jacksonville, Florida, where I later met the man of my dreams. We both attended the University of Central Florida, GO KNIGHTS! We just made the move with our two pups to Pensacola, Fl, and cannot get enough of the emerald coast! I’m a proud “Dog Mom” to Oliver and Clarke, whom I bribe with treats to be my models for the Blooming Anchor Dog Apparel. You’ll be sure to see them on our website and social media pages!

In my free time, I am typically learning new skills, binging the latest TV series or outside soaking in the sunshine! My passion for crafting came when I was little, and I’ve always loved to give custom gifts to friends and family, but often found them too expensive. So, I learned how to make them myself! These custom gifts were always a big hit, and I realized that I had the opportunity to provide custom gifts and items at a fraction of the price that other businesses charge. Thus The Blooming Anchor was born in 2020!

What started as Dog Apparel and Home Decor items had grown into Wedding Decor, Kitchen Items, Custom Apparel, and much more. We’re adding new items consistently based on the feedback and needs of our amazing customers. If we don’t have an item that suits your needs, let us know! I will either learn to create it for you or find someone who will. 

My favorite part of being the owner of The Blooming Anchor is connecting with our customers and my goal is to make every purchase into a new friendship. We understand how stressful planning a wedding is or bringing a new bundle of joy into your busy life. My job is to make sure you have one less thing to stress about and a friend through the process. I want to thank each one of you for your support. We wouldn’t be here without God by our side and our valued customers.
