This interesting shaped tin has a picture of Lion's Gate Bridge in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on the front. My Mom always had this with sewing stuff in it. I have not decided what I will organize in it. There is a puncture, like an awl or scissors poked from the inside out and there is a raised rough hole about an 1/8" thick on one end. I don't know how I can soften it without runing the aqua color and painting on the side. Since theoretically my children will NOT be using this tin, I may just leave it as I know it is there and will be careful. Hey Mom! Do you know the story behind this tin?
