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.

merry merry christmas!

Wishing you and yours a Christmas filled with love, family and friends. (Hopefully all three at the same time).

playing catch up.

Hi there, friends. I’ve missed you. It’s interesting how hard it is to return to a blog that’s gone silent. I almost feel like I somehow lost my blog “voice” – as in, what do I say now, and how do I say it? In April, things got very, very busy as we had Spring […]

daytrippin': table mountain & the wildlife sanctuary

It’s Spring! Hip Hip Hooray! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. We managed to pull off a weekend full of some of the best-of-the-best things that Chico has to offer for the season, and it was dee-lightful. So delightful I thought I’d share it with you. Remember this day-trippin’ post from a couple […]

a little cottage ranch: all the rest.

Wrapping up the last of my parent’s remodel here – I thought I would give you a brief peek at the rest of the house. The living room was a small, low ceiling room with original wood floors, dingy white walls and some nice mid-century modern furniture (which wasn’t staying, as it belonged to previous […]

valentine’s night in.

Happy Valentine’s day, friends! More importantly, happy Friday! Do you have big plans for the night/weekend? Matt and I love to eschew traditional Valentine responsibilities (no big dinner out, no expectations of a romantic gift, simple fresh grower’s bunch of grocery store flowers, etc). We skip the pressure, the baby sitter $$$ (if your sitter […]
