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!

Nostalgic Folk Art June Offerring on The Merc

This is Sunny Slope Slide, a place where wild things play! I have to thank my hubs Dan for constructing this slide for me! He puts up with my mania and knows exactly what works with my figures. I guess being together for so long (23 years on the 6th of this month) ya kinda mesh. Most definitely tho he will be collaberating more and more with me on some bigger pieces to come. Anyway here is my Dan.

And here is my other offerring this month. She is a Sea Monkey Queen! How nostalgic is that? Remember the back of your comic books, and how they looked like such a happy family? I actually ordered some and remember the bitter disapointment when a packet of powder came (freeze dried microscopic sea fleas or something). I expected a family alive ( the mind of innocent wonderment)with clothes and crowns, heck I even expected a sea monkey pet dog. Yikes! So here is my version a Sea Monkey a queen and very faboooooosh! (in my opinion giggle)

So check out TDIPT Mercantile and see all the wonderful things the gals have to offer this month and don't forget to go back on the 15th so see the other new things offered by our "moonies"

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. "
