It's My Blogiversary!

 I had planned to post this the day before yesterday, but better late than never! 
Well, where should I start? Before this blog I had another one, also called FlowersInMyBasket, After stopping blogging for a few months, I made this one, but didn't actually start using right away. June 24th 2016 is when I started to use this blog. If you'd like, check out my old blog HERE! But be sure to come back when you're done!
  Blogging has been (and is!) such a fun experience! And God has been helping me so much throughout this year! I'm super excited to see what happens with FlowersInMyBasket this coming year. :)

  • This blog has 177 comments (including mine) 
  • Most of my audience is in the USA, but after that is France.
  • My first comment was by my Mom, on July 7th, 2016.

  I made a survey using Survey Monkey, and I'd love for you to fill it out below!

    I'm going to be trying a photo contest!  I've never had one before, and I hope it goes well!

To enter:
  Send me an email at with a black&white picture (one you took). Please don't send one with a person in it; it can be a flower, a pet, a fancy dish set, but please no more than 1 entry per person.
  You could also enter by posting your picture on Goolge+ or Instagram with the hashtag #flowersinmybasketphotocontest .

    Depending on how many people enter, I may be posting some or all of the entries on here, and having a vote for the best picture. The winner will win a prize!(Scroll down!)


   In case you couldn't tell, it's a camera lens mug! It looks like a camera lens, but really is a cup with a lid!

Note-  Entries may be received until July 10th. This contest is only open to people that live in the continental USA.

  I'd love it if you'd enter, and please tell your friends! I hope you all have a great day, and to finish off, feel free to answer these questions in the comments below. :)

Do you have a blog?
When's your blogiversary?
Will you enter the photo contest?

    When I first saw the camera lens mug I thought: that's a cool prize but I don't have a camera to go with it. That's the coolest prize ever!!
