Ringling Brother Museum ~ Part 4- Miniatures!

The miniatures were mind blowing. 

One man made and designed all of this. 
Howard C. Tibbals made a 3800 sq. Ft scale model of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus at is 1919-1938 peak. 

The details blew me away. 

I could have spent hours in there and not have seen it all. 

Look at all of the details that the artist included. 

I love how he replicated the big top! 

Detto and Sissy!! 

It really brings more thought into everything that goes on in order to make the circus happen. 

I love that this one is a woman washing her hair. What a thought.... people were living without running water. 

I love that the elephants were all dressed up! 

People came from all around to see the circus!

Spring Break Part 3 ~ Ringling Brothers Museum!

We took a special Private tour of the inside of the Ringlings Home!

Dining Room

I loved to find out that all of their furniture was 2nd hand! It is great to find out that they were thrifty!

This door is amazing! 

Mr. Ringlings suit! 

They had a ton of artwork painted on the ceilings. 

The bedrooms were exquisite.
The decorations were so over the top! 

Mrs. Ringlings room was fit for a queen. 

Look at her bed!! 

I love the all lace bedspread. 

Her ceiling had little surprises all throughout. 

Even the guest bedrooms were elegant.
