The Stylists Guide to Adelaide
Poets Ode is in the foothills of adelaide, in postcard perfect, Hanhdorf.
I had the luck to squeeze in a visit (about 45 mins from airport) during a work trip.
The gorgeous owners, Alia & Scout have stripped back on old shop & embraced its raw humble self. With a series of higgle piggle rooms, all sunfilled coming through the blown glass windows. Take note of the display pieces, found locally but oh-so European.
The shop is layers of muted tones: whites ,creams, caramels and sells cool stuff from all over the world.
as well as having art showings. The artworks were round & detailed in copper, the velvet pillows were just the right mushy, the throws were striped or plain & edged in pom poms and a tea room is opening soon!
I loved everything and went away with an olive oil pourer, a cotton baby hat, a silk wool baby hat, a amulet necklace and a needle made from a thorn

The history of The Rocks has always sparked my imagination .
It started when I read ‘Playing Bettie Bow’ at school & continued with my study of Australian history .
It evokes the mysteries of times long ago , with it’s sandstoned paved ways , side alleys , tunnels & beautiful buildings
I have refreshed a secret place , down nurses walk & up a unassuming flight of stairs . It is named after the mistress of a merchant – a romantic tragedy involving class, adventure & true love!
Come for tipple at Scarlett
Each piece is bespoke, handcrafted&tooled, a historical nod to materials that would have been used when The Rocks was settled
Leather lined walls with Sleeper veneers creating the walls
The banquette is made from 200 year old sleepers, milled & oiled to anchor the room with feathered cushions covered in linen to settle into
A smithed & forged Copper topped communal table , all patched with flat head copper tacks
Antiqued mirror topped tables , all inky & stormy
Look at the details, a Pickle jar that most likely sailed into Sydney harbour full of Mediterranean olives , a sneaky Copper fire hydrant and And of course the model of the shop that Eric sailed on

The final week of the Bowerbird Instagram competition!
The unexpected fun & fantasy of old-fashioned sideshows, fairs and funhouses; thoughts of tomfoolery & practical jokes and bags of mixed sweets.
Amulets & talismans, crowns, tiaras & masks, gaming paraphernalia, flags & bunting. We want to see it all.
