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. 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.

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!

Funniest Pet Contest Is On!

How could anyone choose which of these furbabies is the funniest. Ok there are a couple of stand outs well in my mind but everyone has their own ideas of funny. No doubt they are all precious. I haven't voted yet and it is a difficult choice for me. I think my friends all know why.

This is just an example of the adorable hilarity you'll see there. And to be fair I chose this pic as everyone knows I have a Boston and am a freak about them but Believe me there are pics there that make me chuckle and shake my head just as much too. Ugh I can't decide whom to choose but I must before Sept. 30th. Contest ends then at 5. I have to keep checking out the pics. It's like choosing which hand I like better my right or left. giggle.

The contest over at the TDIPT blog is for the funniest pets and yes all these precious cats, dogs, and dancing goats belong to members. There are members who have rabbits and donkeys and hens as well. A very pet friendly site and I think that says alot about them as people.
Make sure you head on over there and place a vote for the one who makes you giggle or smile really big. Just click on the banner and you'll be led to the blog over there. Once your done voting check out The Merc and see what wonderful items the gals have to offer this month.


This is Wonder Cat and his very proud mom is Karen (Cookie)DeGreve of Curds -n- Whey. He couldnt make the contest, he was too busy on a secret mission!

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. "
