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.

Remember the original inspiration/moodboard? Well, I thought I would walk you around to the backyard today. The grounds of this place are […]

Quack, quack), and I plan to spend the rest of the weekend prepping for family that will be in town for thanksgiving, plus shopping and baking, etc. Basically, the Autumn stuff we all dream […]

a tale of two wreaths.

Anybody who’s been following this blog for a while knows I have a little wreath obsession. As soon as Autumn hits, I like to slip one up on my front door, and then swap it out for an evergreen version over the Winter holidays. A bare door at this time of year almost seems naked […]

rice harvest { 2013 }

Well, it’s that time of the year… every September and October we buckle down into harvest. It’s a unique, lovely and yet trying time. Seeing the fruit of your labors all year long. Separate from the kids and spouse for days and days on end. I’d say a delightfully bittersweet season, as some things in […]

gone camping { 2013 }

We managed to eke out a camping trip at the end of summer, right before the start of harvest. I have to admit, camping with three super young boys is something of a slog. Nobody to help pack, carry, load or organize, SO MUCH STUFF to bring (pack and plays, diapers, booster seats, kid carry […]
