They sent an email last night...
"Our shop roombox competition closed on 28th February and we were delighted at both the number and quality of the entries we received. Entries came from 7 different countries and 3 different continents and judging was a very difficult task. We would like to make special mention of following entries which are Highly Commended -Jackie Gilchrist (UK), Claudia Lezza (Italy), Keli Minick (USA), Rose O Donovan (Ireland), Valerio & Vittorio Ruschetta (Italy) . The winner is Caroline Hemmings (UK) for her replica of a traditional J Sainsbury grocery store. Caroline made all the furniture and more than 500 food items as well as the clothes for the shop asistant and customer. We were very impressed at the quality of her workmanship and her thriftiness in using cuttings from old magazines, coloured foil from sweet wrappers and wooden stirrers from fast food restaurants! Please take a look at all the entries on our Facebook page."
Awww, I'm highly commended. Makes me smile :)
