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!

How can i put this?








there are words but i wont say them as i am angry, we have had a terrorist attack in nearby Orlando. An angry,mentally unstable coward plain and simple walked into a night club.  A coward and murderer who with a cult damaged mind thought it ok to randomly kill those who did not believe in his evil.


Logic doesnt penetrate the deluded and fevered mind.




My heart goes out to the survivors and the family of those killed by evil.

Its getting so hot round here!

and i know i'm going to lose my garden soon.   I'm going to miss having cut flowers in my home and heading out in the am to water the garden areas and sit and have a cup of coffee there in the am.

so sharing these pics here before its all gone from the Florida summer heat which seems to be coming early


These are the flowers i cut from the garden




they just make me so happy, slightly faded like an old kodak instant picture, nostalgic and a simple kind of beauty.





this sunflower came from bird seed (i had a bird feeder above ) and it really fought a good fight!



Archie always ready for play time!  Henry would rather just rest inside in the cool air.  He is doing good most days. like the sunflower, he is so strong and the bravest little dog i know.

flowers all around for now











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. "
