Kind Hearts and a Pinkeep

Worthy Hands

Be worthy, love thy neighbor
Kind hearts are the gardens
Kind thoughts are the seeds
Kind words are blossoms
The fruits are kind deeds.


I made this little bag with their beautiful design that of Alice and Sally long ago, and now Alice is the sole proprietor of our beloved Kindred Spirits. I treasure their kind simplicity.

This little necessary of a box with a drawer latches onto a table. The primitive linen pinkeep is so very endearing with it's wee mended spot just for a favorite needle. Thimbles in the drawer, and everything is ready for a quiet sewing session in the front parlor.

I procured this little wonder from Curry's Antiques in beautiful Lancaster, Ohio.


  1. Hi Christine...Oh, I love Kindred Spirits. I have ordered their wool and it is wonderful.
    Such a lovely bag and verse. And such a functional little pinkeep...the beauty is in it's simplicity.

    Have a wonderful day,
    Hugs, Nancy

  2. Love the little poem...
    Hope all is well in beautiful Oregon.

  3. A beautiful sentiment. Such simple words but such a powerful meaning. The bag is wonderful as is the pinkeep.


  4. This is so sweet! I love pinkeeps, they're so dainty pretty and useful!~

  5. Hello Zwee!

  6. Beautiful sweet tiny pinkeep. How lucky to live in such beautiful state, years ago my husband and I travelled partly on the Oregon Trail, I've never forgotten the covered wagon ruts on the way and Chimney Rock.
    Thank you Christine! for your heartfelt comments I love what I'm doing, it's so rewarding! I am learning as well. I have open books of reference all over the house!
