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! will be closing on 6/25/13. I am focusing on my Etsy shop and the stores and galleries that carry my work. who knows I may open another website in the future but keeping up with 2 Etsy shops, Facebook, my blog and making Nostalgic Folk Art, its alot.

I love making patriotic figures. The red white and blues are so lovely to me, especially when they are vintage, antique and or primitive. 
Just finished and listed this Liberty Santos on my etsy shop

Don't know what got into me

but i just looked at these plain but sweet vintage (1940s) plastic salt and pepper shakers and turned Venus De Milo in a show girl! for a funky table! the salt and pepper flows from their boobies and the white one needs a new cork.

what these used to look like

the new and improved and on my etsy site for the daring girl! or boy

A beautiful spring day!

and Henry is enjoying the hot sandy area near the back of our garage.
How are you enjoying the day?

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. "
