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!

A Great Weekend!

Running behind in this blog but have been so danged busy!!! Anyway for Mother's Day, which has turned into a Mother's Weekend (heehee), Sat. we took my mom out for dinner at Martins which is across from the ocean and the shrimp there is KILLER! Its one of mom's and my favorite places to eat and the view is so old Fl to me. Then on Sunday my boys made my favorite, grilled lamb chops. Here's Kipp working the grill. And yes the gas grill is in the background but I like the charcoal flavor not available in a gas grill. Heck I think that grill is probably all rusted out and probably needs a push to the curb.

Ok have to show pics of the Boston babies and notice they are not together. Henry still has problems with Archie but Archie is an imp and could get on St. Francis Asis last nerve. But Lord that face gets him off every time! giggle

The weather was wonderful and the company the best! The spirits were flowing the food was delicious and look at the view. I love love love my little sitting space and love to sit there with a drink and nibbles.
I mean it really takes me away from any stress that may be in my life and brings out my faith in God. Nature no matter how small a spot can do that.

We added corn and tomatoes this year and think we will continue to expand the edible part. Can't wait to fry some green tomatoes!

The end of the day and all the celebrating done here are the Bostons on each end of the couch.

Henry doesn't look like he's having a sound sleep giggle probably wondering when Archie will pounce!!

No words needed cept Archie.

In addition to being in the spotlight today at Rancho Roll, I'm blessed to be in the spotlight in the To Dwell In Primitive Thymes blog.
Yahoo hope everyone, lady, mother, or not has a perfect day today!

This piece is called Fierce Mamas and is a tribute to all the ladies out there who everyday fight the good fight on dirt, grime, laundry, boo boos and the ever deadly "Whats for dinner" I mean after 30 plus years what the heck else can I do with a chicken!?!

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. "
