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!

Update on The Boston Babies

Here are my boys, Henry and Archie at play usually its in the Nostalgic Folk Art studio which makes it hard to work when they are so funny to watch, but they are all over the place today. Archie the puppy just goes and goes and poor Henry is never allowed to have a toy to himself. Which is so weird as he definitely whoops his butt when they rough house. Well he's never rough with him even though wouldnt blame him now and then, but he definitely can put him in his place. As you can see (well barely from the pic)Archie is a toy hoarder, he must have all the balls and refuses to share with Henry.

A picture of my darling Henry. He's so danged cute!

Now here's Archie's mug shots giggle, he is so funny and such a pest and a great snuggler!

Lil Archie enjoying the spoils of war! (Henry always lets him win)

These two fellas are such a joy in our house and I'm so in love with this breed. Can ya tell? :)

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. "
