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.

our bathroom { in cottages & bungalows magazine }

Yesterday I had the pleasure of walking into Lowes and picking up a copy of Cottages & Bungalows magazine which, on page 67, has our very own black and white guest bathroom. How exciting is that!?! If you had told me three years ago as we started our remodel that our home would end up […]

progress, progress {bathroom update}

It’s been eerily quiet around here on the blog.  Let’s just say the computer and I have been taking a little break from each other, much to everyone’s general satisfaction. But I thought I would pop by and say “hello” just as you were leaving for the weekend.  So hi there, friend! A bit of […]

a hex upon you.

The bathroom remodel(s) continue.  And continue.  On and on and on. I’d love to say we’re in the home stretch – but I don’t think we are yet!  I keep remembering the old formula:  great quality, great price, speedy delivery – pick any two.  So true!  We have definitely chosen the former two in that […]
