gold goddesses

Nearly all the girls she knew told her they hated yellow gold. 
Alexander McQueen

They didn't like the way it looked. 
They preferred white gold, platinum, or silver. 

She shrugged her shoulders, that's okay, for them.

 But for me, she thought, that doesn't mean I can't like it. 
The only way she was going to be limited by color, is if she decided, for herself.

Frosted mountain light
Ancient golden leaves falling
Spring wave augurs life

Searching for the Gold
Not found in the mine, but Soul
Tranquility, Peace.

Gold, caress my soul -
Thou art warmth and protection
'gainst confetti snow.
by waverider

By daily life pressed
A loves touch, a glint of gold
My spirit renewed

From cosmic expanse
In primordial epoch
Sprang silver and gold
golden sunset's peace;
patient, i trudge home anew...
my heart remembers.

A Peck of Gold
by Robert Frost
Dust always blowing about the town,
Except when sea-fog laid it down,
And I was one of the children told
Some of the blowing dust was gold.

Signature by Susanna

All the dust the wind blew high
Appeared like god in the sunset sky,
But I was one of the children told
Some of the dust was really gold.

Signature Style by Susanna

Such was life in the Golden Gate:
Gold dusted all we drank and ate,
And I was one of the children told,
'We all must eat our peck of gold.'

This video is only 2 minutes. If you like Alexander McQueen's fashion. It's worth watching. It's total ingenious astonishment!

This is a very cool pictorial of Stevie Nicks while the song plays. The cowbell is definitely included

I have no idea what year the America video is. I'm gonna guess late 70's early 80's. The concert footage and outfits crack me up!

I don't know if I've shared this Rilo Kiley song below before, but here's an acoustic version.

Artist: Rilo Kiley lyrics
Title: Silver Lining

And I’m not going back
Into rags or in the hole
And our bruises are coming
But we will never fold

And i was your silver lining
As the story goes
I was your silver lining
But now I’m gold...

And I was your silver lining
High up on my toes
You were running through fields of hitch-hikers
As the story goes

And the grass it was a ticking
And the sun was on the rise
I never felt so wicked
As when I willed our love to die

And I was your silver lining
As the story goes
I was your silver lining
But now I’m gold


  1. You make yellow gold seem so appealing. I'm going to have to adjust my jewelry to work this into my wardrobe, which is really just an added bonus.

  2. I can't deal! So much gorgeousness. I want it all, Alexander McQueen has my heart. That dress with the white trumpet style bottom?! I die.
