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!

Happy First Day of Fall!

Well just finished a blog on the sweet box I received from a dear friend and should of mentioned the crows in the window were made by Patty of Dogpatch Primitives and Starla of Briar Rabbit Primitives(with the strawberry). I wish the pic would of been clearer!

With that being said a new wonderful creation arrived today, from TDIPT artist, Karen(Peanut) of Countryfolk Keepsakes. Its a lovely pink flamingo which is wonderful with my vintage Florida collection. Pretty cool huh?! check out her website to see her wonderful birds and other goodies she makes. I have a wonderful Boston Terrier figure from her that is too sweet!

Totally biased but the work from the gals from TDIPT is addicting!

Sorry couldnt resist these pics but it really shows how life is so good some days. And dogs really do Rule! Especially Boston Terriers!

Happy Fall Ya'll!!! (Peanut made this lil additon and its so cool!)

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. "
