Shopping and Inspiration

Today I went to Anthropologie just to have a look around. I stumbled upon some beautiful blue glass knobs that were on sale! I have an old dresser of mine that's currently living in the guest bedroom, but I've always wanted to paint it and give it some new knobs. Here's the problem: there were 5 knobs on sale, and I needed 6. So, I thought and thought, and decided that I would go for the antique shabby chic look and get 5 matching knobs plus one that kind-of coordinates. I knew that if I saw a painted dresser in a store that had one mismatched knob, that I would love it. Therefore, here's what I bought:

While I was out shopping, I got really inspired by all of the wonderful spring and summer dresses (I was not inspired, however, by their price tags). It made me really want to try to make my own. Something like one of these perhaps:
