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.


My blog is just to get a more personal view of Nostalgic Folk Art what inspires me. Thank you for taking the time to visit!







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











The Best to you always!

Happy Dec!

Cant believe its Dec already!     this weekend we hope to do a little decorating inside and out.


finishing up my last snowman and hope to list him in the next couple of days. he is a large one too!

also just finished a rabbit and one of my original idea/ design kitchen witch boards and will be listing them this afternoon.   ive been making these boards for a few years now and these designs are very personal, sometimes i use them myself before i decide to sell them. this one is special because i have added a little vintage pan to hold your chalk and coupons also added one of my magnets to hold your list.     hope you like this new one.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving

and loving all the little blessings that come your way



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. "
