1. Family, whether near or far, here or not here, we are thankful for them all.
2. Time. In the sense of taking it. Enjoying the moments and reveling in the peace (or chaos) of your beautiful life.
3. Miracles, of varying magnitude and scale. The little ones running around your yard, the big ones that you can’t believe happened (but they did.)
4. Corn on the cob… with butter. YES. Okay- that is silly but what’s 4th of July without corn on the cob?? And what’s corn on the cob without butter?? (A tragedy. That’s what.)
“Receiving a gift of Waxing Poetic is so special because you know that the person who gave it to you really knows your personality.”
Sisters Ella, Georgie and Tamsyn Walker each share the story of their individual journeys, and the personal style they cultivate through their Waxing Poetic collection. When the Walker sisters aren’t hanging out at their Santa Ynez Valley, California ranch, they are travelling the world, studying abroad, working in the city and getting ready to go off to college. This is a look into the lives of three sisters, with three very different personal styles and three big things in common: their authentic expression of giving, their zeal for life, and their tight loving bond with each other.
Here the Walker sisters collectively create a Mother’s Day story necklace for their Mom. Watch the video to see more, what pieces they choose and why.

Mother, Mom, Mommy, Ma, Mama, Momma, Mami, Mimi – this is for you who
Held our hands, kissed our knees, straightened our stances, and showed us the world
One marvel at a time — read us stories, taught us colors, wore our macaroni jewels, saved our crusty tempera paintings from the 2nd grade, taught us dignity + humor, taught us how to use our hearts as best we could (and as best you did, always): to LOVE…
Welcome to Nota Bene (both Latin and Italian for “note well,” which we do around here!). At Waxing Poetic, we make things, and get the chance to see them made real (and loved, and changed – by all of you). Here you will find tiny actions, tiny pieces, and tiny particulars of our process – the small (and not so small) things that matter much.
Enjoy! Patti Pagliei, Founder
