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,

The Best to you always!

Welcome Archie

We have a new baby Boston Terrier in our home today and his name is Archie. He is 2lbs and 6 oz. of pure sweetness!
I'm soooooooooooooo tired already as our beloved Henry is not pleased with this new additon at all. And so I have been trying to show Henry he is still our baby and also make Archie feel safe and loved in his new home. I know eventually Henry will accept him completely. Right now he is pouting in his kennel. Poor tender hearted Henry.
Here is a picture we took of Henry as soon as we came in the door and brought Archie home. Poor Henry ran and "hid" under the bar stools. I have never seen him look like this, almost as if to say, How long is that staying. Look at his ears they are back so far they are almost touching.

Archie is sleeping on my lap as he has had a heck of a day so far. Playing ,eating ,pooping and trying to keep away from Henry. Even when sleeping he has one bulgy eye open and watching Henry. Henry is a sweetheart and knows he is a puppy but it is clear he is not quite as enchanted as Dan and I are. For so long he was the only pebble on the beach.You know its true that you can lead a horse to water but you cant make it drink.

Tee came by to see lil Archie and man did she fall for his funny face and bowed legs.

There is nothing like a baby animal. Just precious and sweet and soft.


  1. There's my godson!!! Oh Carol, he is absolutely precious!!! He's so new and pink! ♥ I love him!
    Poor Henry looks quite traumatized, but give him time. Soon these two will be inseparable. ♥ Congratulations and give Archie a smooch for me and tell Henry we still love him very much.

    Darla, Hannah and Gracie send their love too.

  2. Does he have a lil' soft spot on his noggin?? ♥ I remember our Darla's took forever to grow in. She was like a bobblehead. :> )

  3. Awwwwww...Welcome Sweet Baby Archie! Carol, he is just adorable! Poor Henry though. He looks so forlorn. Time will make these two into bestest buddies. Hugs to Archie & Henry. Congrats on the new baby! Hugs, Starla :)

  4. Thanks Ladies, poor Henry is right, my heart is broken for him. He just has to come around soon. Lil Archie will be a wonderful friend for him. He is a pistol!

  5. Awwwwww Jinx your little Archie is just the sweetest!
    Give Henry a big ol' hug from me. I sure hope he warms up quick!

    Baby animals are just the best aren't they?

    Happiest of Holidays to you and yours!
    Your bud, Audrey


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. "
