Nostalgic Folk Art was born in 2004. I came up with Nostalgic Folk Art name for my paper mache figures because I love the older things that remind me of my childhood and of innocent times prior to the 1960's .They are figures of folks both childish and impish and I love vintage folk art so putting nostalgic with folk art was/is a perfect and fitting name for my lil figures and business.

And when your done visiting here, I'd love for you to check out my work on my etsy shop,

The Best to you always!

Went to the Flea Market with a dear friend

Andrea moved to Ca so far from this Fl gal, but no matter how far apart we are, we are still two peas in a pod. 

We loved some of the same items at the Flea Market and have the same taste in decorating, but i have to give her props as she is way more creative in decorating than i am.

anyway she sent me some pics from the day as i forgot my camera (still have a flip top phone so no pics from me and not a tech person at all)

 pulling me from my studio to head out, i'm so bzy trying to make pieces for Christmas

 her find of the day, this very large empty paged scrap book, i know she'll make something wonderful with it. have no idea whose feet those are   yikes
i found some earrings and 2 religious charms, and a candy tin oh and a wire shell thing for the garden but no pics you know why

 Here we are at Cracker Barrel, she was craving the chicken friend steak with gravey and i was craving the hash brown casserole, we southern gals like it fried, with gravy, bacon or cheese! tired from the hot flea market but good food was about to be devoured. my first selfie from her phone

 she had to take a pic of the boys!

My First Written Review/Kinda like your first dollar, I treasure this dearly

"Carol Roll is a relative new-comer, creating folk art for four years, now. Her paper mache figures reflect significant talent. At first glance, her angels, people, mermaids, and animals may appear cute and dear. At closer look, they are sophisticated, with detailed, expressive faces, each unique. Roll's work is anything but mass produced. It's the real deal. "
