<p>Trinity College Dublin's library was built in 1592, and houses the 1,000-year-old Book of Kells. Controversy was sparked when librarians realized the long room, pictured here, bears striking resemblance to the Jedi Archives in the Jedi Temple in <em><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity_College_Library#In_popular_culture" target="_blank">Star Wars</a></em>--but director George Lucas called it a coincidence.</p>
This petite little teacup is my very favorite one I’ve ever found! It’s got a lovely pearlized finish and little blue bubbles. I call it my “mermaid teacup.” It was made by Limoges and an internet source dates the mark from between 1892-1907. I’m not really sure I believe it’s that old, but regardless, I really love it! quoted from Lauren's blog.
