Pin It Weekly #93

Wow!  This week has really flown by!  Past time for some pinning!

Live a luscious life with LUSCIOUS:

The mother of a wonderful friend is not well.  We went to visit her last evening and, I'm sorry to say, it's quite difficult to see her in such a state.  To honor her beauty and resilience, I'll pin some of her favorite things, beginning with a few flowers in pink.

love these fabric wrapped canes. Would be a cute gift for an elderly person for the holidays....or just brighten up a cane they already have!

Fantastic gift for an elderly loved one. This electronic pill box will notify you (or anyone) if a dose was taken on time, late or missed.

Bird Feeder which sticks to a window is great for elderly people who cannot access their garden freely

Because she is in her mid- to late-nineties, she was born in the 1910's or 1920's.  These photos are from that era and perhaps a few into the 1930's.
