Our Go-To Places

When the world puzzles us or squeezes us or strains us to our limits, we turn to our go-to places. We have go-to places to gather information, engage in interests, indulge in luxury, and where we can just be ourselves. Dusty Shutt Silver has a question: What are your go-to places?   Go-to places have been blessings for a long time. The Bible has guided men and women for thousands of years to knowing .

Our Talk About Jewelry

Okay, let’s talk about our jewelry. We’re getting ready for work or a night out or something in-between, and what are we going to wear for jewelry? We sort through the jewelry box, pushing this and that out of the way, waiting for something to hit us as “perfect” for the occasion. And you know what we usually do? We choose the exact same piece – necklace or bracelet or earrings – we always .

Under the White Tents

Sounds, Sights, Scents, and Gifts of Christmas

It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas. Bells ring in front of shops around town, and coins are dropped into bright red buckets. Choirs of school children in the mall sing as sweetly as the first carolers who sang to the shepherds. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. How beautiful are the branches of our elegantly dressed trees! If there’s not snow on the ground, we’ve sprayed it onto our windows. .

There’s a Change in the Air

There’s a change in the air. The seasons they are a’changin’, James Whitcomb Riley would have written. Indeed, the trees are glamorous in their shimmery golden gowns. The sunshine is peeking up these mornings deeper to the south. The very atmosphere has taken on a crispness unknown to sultry summery days. Riley wrote, “They’s something kindo’ harty-like about the atmusfere                              .

Our Love Affair With Jewelry

This one we readily admit to – our love affair with jewelry. Our eyes are drawn to it wherever it’s displayed – on others, in the counter, in the window. We’re always checking it out. And critiquing it. “Nice.” “Expensive.” “Good taste.” Or our thoughts may be negative. But we’re constantly noticing jewelry wherever we see it. And we’re always happy to show off our own. What is it with us and jewelry? We .

The Furnace and The Hammer

The furnace refines and softens. The hammer shapes. The silversmith uses both to form the silver into pieces of jewelry you want to wear. The blast of heat removes impurities and brings sterling silver to its best value. The fire takes the silver from solid and unyielding to malleable, ready to be shaped by the craftsman’s imagination.                                   .

Wear the Wild

Father’s Day approaches. And so starts the mad scramble: what do we buy him this year? A gift card from the local hardware store for yet another tool? A tie he’ll never wear even if it is a Jerry Garcia? A wallet? Dusty Shutt Silver has a better idea for items on your shopping list. Let’s honor our man and choose a gift he’ll wear with pride while feeling that we really do get .

Wear the Flair

Colorado natives are a proud crowd. They brag about the Bi-centennial state and her many splendors, and are fervent followers of her extreme sports. Colorado high country flair is wide-flung wherever they look. Climbing the “fourteeners” to breathe fresh air on mountaintops, bicycling the miles and miles of rugged trails, jeepers and skiers and hikers – whatever her natives, and visitors, are into, Colorado provides soaring scenery and perfect playgrounds.   Colorado high country .
