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!

Well heck Kindness Does Matter!

Everyday is special even when it really stinks and believe me some days in my life have been horrendously rotton as well as spectacularly phenominal.
Anyway recently i have received a happy fall day package from a dear friend, which suspiciously arrived this week.

This super cute ornie is hanging in my living room and everytime i walk in there i think of my dear friend who took the time to make him and send him my way.

I say that as I dont really celebrate my birthday anymore(we do go out to Martins for dinner around that time tho) as every day i have is a special day. No i dont have cake or presents daily I just am happy to see my family my dogs have a good meal or a really good sleep and do what i love to do for a living even if its a not a lavish one.

I also feel the same about Mother's day too. giggle.


  1. oh and for the record... you might not celebrate them, but I can still wish you a VERY VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jinxie. Love you so much - and so very thankful God crossed our paths!
    You are a treasure to me

  2. Cookie me too hauney and your work just makes me smile so Thank you so much my dear sweet friend!


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. "
