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!

More Lovely Work From My Folk Art Friends

Audrey from Bay Rays Child, makes wonderful wonderful birds and I have some perched on my wire tree in my living room. I am such a greedy bird myself and think you can never have enough of them around. Which reminds me the TDIPT group is about to do a group launch on Ebay more details later.

More added to my BT collection

Some things from Tee of Hot Metal Mama, a portrait of Henry and a sign that is soooo true (from her) and an art box she made. Check out her site for more of them.

Finally I got my Dogpatch Primitives by Patricia Kelly Trevino!

Of course I have to add more pics of the trials of my poor Henry. Here he is sunning himself in a spot in the now ruined garden (from the freezing temps), but weary as the lil one is meandering his way.

and here he comes, I think Henry is thinking, can't a dog get some peace in their own garden or whats left of it?

Archie, a face only this mom loves, but Henry will come around right?

Peace at last I like to think or maybe he's thinking, how much longer must I endure a puppy?

Its so cold this poor lizard is just sitting there allowing me to take his pic and in serious danger as Henry is the great lizard, squirrel hunter.

The lizard got away, I wouldn't allow Henry to harm him.

this morning this happened on its own and more joy to my heart, infact they are playing right now around the house, I'm totally ignoring them and doing my blog and so today is gonna be a great one!

  4. You have a lovely collection of artwork, Carol! Love those pids of your little darlin out in the yard!! Susan


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. "
