    Yes, thanks for posting all of these! Although, it’s almost getting stressful for me to have all these shops to sift through. I just spent the last two days organizing my computer bookmarks (what a mess!).

    My name is Carolina and I’m from Bogotá, Colombia (South America). I’ve followed your blog for moths now, always filled with beautiful things.

    Today I found something very special! A poster of colombian food “Comida criolla” by Marcela Restrepo in the LeftyHand link. Marcela is a colombian illustrator living in Sydney Australia, but I didn’t know her!

    So today I also find this gem of a fellow colombian doing wonderful things abroad, thanks to your blog!
