"Notions" as in "small items used in sewing"

Bit relieved to see I'd missed FJ by a length. My first thought was wings, as in earn your wings (which can be gold), but that didn't sound too medieval. With time running short, I hit pause on the DVR and instantly thought of earning your stripes, which could be both gold and medieval (though I suppose they're more modern military). Not sure I'd have deserved credit had that been right, thus my relief. I bet this polls under 25%.

I got spurs instantly, but that may have something to do with the fact that I'm both a horse geek and a history (including medieval history) geek. Got a little distracted by Placido's singing, but came up with Madame Butterfly. That was a category that I crammed the weekend before my tape date, and Pinkerton's name was definitely on my crib sheet for opera. (Of course, not an opera question to be found in either of my games...)

Looks like I have a lot of company in guessing "golden gloves" and not hearing of "golden spurs" (or "earning your spurs", for that matter).

At least I picked up lots of Lach trash in Catch Phrases, Movie Themes, Notions...
