hello there.

Well, whaddya wanna know?  Here's the plain and simple truth:  My name is Rebekah Tennis and I love design.  I love paper, the way it feels, its weight and texture.  I love extra special touches on little things: homemade tags on gift-wrap, old stamps on an envelope, and twine on nearly everything.

My husband, business partner and all-around solid rock Matt would probably tell you that he likes tools - lots of 'em, finding the perfect way to do something, taking things apart, and precision in everything. 

So you might as well have guessed by now... we are the perfect match for an old letterpress studio. Together we farm rice and have three adorable and active boys ages 5 and under.  This keeps us fairly busy, but whenever we have a spare moment, we crank up our 102 year old Chandler and Price platen press and pull some prints, or whip out a card line on the Heidelberg. 

There's more, oh yes, there IS more - but that's what this blog is for.  Take a look around, get to know us, our great town of Chico, California and our beautiful presses.

master bathroom {f.a.q.}

Way, way back when, I promised you details on our master bathroom remodel (remember, the one we started in January?).  Well, it’s been more than a month, and I have yet to produce anything for you.  What’s more, I haven’t even posted the after photos on THIS blog (although I had the joy of sharing […]

{ happy monday. }

Did you have a good weekend?  Here in Northern California, it was sunny, mild and perfect. We had a little farmer’s market, a little coffee shop, a few good cleanup projects (we’re parking our cars in the garage for the first time since the remodel!!!) and a little hiking and exploring the amazing recesses of […]

Paoli Tennis, 1993 – 2010.

If you’re on twitter or facebook you may already know this, but on Monday we lost our beloved kitty cat.  I won’t harp on it too long… just wanted to give her a little send off here on the blog.  Here goes… Paoli may well have been the luckiest stray cat in Big Bear ever.  […]

{ things i love. }

Pattern and Texture.  They go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly, Laurel and Hardy, Milk and Cookies.  At least in my book they do!! Which is why I sincerely enjoy the simple pleasure of customizing one of our invites, the pinstripe in this case, to meet the clients desired pattern… and texture.  And the pinstripe […]

refinishing furniture… again.

Once upon a time, there was a girl with a pool (which she has no longer).  A pool which had no outdoor furniture to set by it.  The budget was tight, she needed to find a really good deal for furniture.  Enter Safeway (yeah, the grocery store).  Better known to some of you So. Cal […]

can she bake a cherry pie, billy boy, billy boy?

Welcome to June!!  Long days, sunshine, and the farmer’s market exploding with fruits, vegetables and flowers.  Love it. Strawberries have come in full force, and now, cherries! Red, luscious, sweet and yet still tart – Bing cherries. Could there be a more all American summer fruit? I think not! (Well, maybe watermelon.) And is there, […]
