I bought this little fish plaque from Beachcomber Hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida, for $1 at a garage sale not far from her Mar Vista home. Like Ruth, I was attracted to the crafty nature of this little treasure made of two wooden angel fish who look like they might be smoking cigars under water. And they'll look perfect in Ruth's heartwarming and retro-tastic kitchen!
