About

Life. Flourishing. Anew.

Blooming Twig Studio came to life two years ago on the first day of Spring. My joy is in creating beauty out of things that have long lost their shine. I love taking on the challenge of turning hopelessness into a brilliant a-ha! That's how my pedestals came to be.

And as most good crafting stories go: It all began at a Goodwill store.

Living on a very constrained budget while raising my two daughters, I frequented the thrift stores in order to make ends meet. I kept seeing these cute little tchotchkes and beautiful mismatched English bone china saucers. I felt sorry for them. What to do? What to do?? Taking pity, I rescued those orphans!

I steadily acquired an eclectic stash of ceramic figurines and colorful plates. Noticing how the colors of a figurine would complement the pattern of a plate, I ceremoniously started marrying the two together. I elevated my union with a pedestal candlestick and…voila… my unique and whimsical Jewelry Pedestals were ushered in, complete with a name to match its new-found personality.

It wasn't until two events converged--my job was ending and my dear mother passed away--that I began a quest for something that would bring life-giving renewal back into my tumultuous life. What to do? I've always found it encouraging that my last name, Blomquist, means "blooming twig" in Swedish. Taking its meaning to heart, I launched Blooming Twig Studio and embraced the motto: "life flourishing anew." Not only am I giving new life and purpose to cast-offs found in thrift stores, but I'm also creating a flourishing new life for myself. Life is indeed imitating art.

Welcome! Blooming Twig Studio is all about life flourishing anew. A blooming twig symbolizes fresh beginnings, new possibilities with a burst of surprising beauty. I hope to perpetuate this Spring-like positivity in my little shop by putting pigs (and other whimsical things) on plates and elevating them to new heights of wonderfulness!

Jewelry Pedestals are my premiering product line~they are the perfect catch-alls for jewelry, car keys, hair accessories, iPods and other special objects that seem to get lost every time you turn around. Other products include Cake Stands, Cupcake/Dessert Pedestals, Apothecary Jars and Farmhouse-style Pedestals.

All my Pedestals are created with an assortment of repurposed items found on the shelves of antique stores and thrift shops. They embody the philosophy of Blooming Twig Studio: Life. Flourishing. Anew.

Come back often, as I will be adding more Pedestals and creating new products
upcycled from items found languishing in thrift stores!

May your life be like a blooming twig, flourishing with endless possibilities!
