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.

diy metallic pillows for fall

Well hello there, Autumn!! This first week of Fall has seemed to follow classic textbook descriptions here in Northern California: crisp nights, sunny but windy days, and the occasional cleansing drizzle of rain. Oh, and rice harvest has started, which means I’m solo-parenting for the next month or so. It also means I’m jazzed up […]

little things: a fireplace fix.

This is the fireplace wall in my living room. In this photo from 2009, it’s decorated for summer. Overall, I love the marble fireplace, the wall, the whole set up. I can decorate it for spring, summer, fall, and christmas and it’s a cozy-ing element to the living room. We had leftover kitchen slab when […]

before and after: our new office.

As promised, here is the rest of our little office refresh!! Now, I’ve never really shown you the office before, right? The only spot it’s ever popped up on the blog is in this Christmas whole house tour. And as I recall, the image I put up there was the “keepin’ it real” part of […]

a $12 ceiling fan redo.

Whoa. August? Really?! I must have blinked, and the back-to-school gremlins (last two weeks!) came along and stole my summer!! As I alluded in this July post, we have been doing tons of little house projects this summer. Organizing, cleaning, trying to make our current home the best it could possibly be right NOW, rather […]
