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.

the absolute last figure for the year and it s a doozy

in a good way! I dont do requests as they stress me out But when Jana suggested this i couldnt resist. anyway vintage wedding cake toppers are highly collectible (i've sold some myself) and here was a great idea from a great gal. a Christmas themed snowmen topper! 

really enjoyed making these! Usually i have made birds but this was so much fun i may do more!

so i'm off to get all my holiday stuff in order so will be back to blogging after Christmas/New Year
take care stay safe and i wish the very best to you always!

Winter Wonderland

just added this large figure to my etsy shop!

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. "
