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.


My blog is just to get a more personal view of Nostalgic Folk Art what inspires me. 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, www.etsy.com/shop/NostalgicFolkArt











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!)

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.

Henry and Archie!

Its been awhile since I've shared pics of my Bostons but they are always on the go and it makes it so difficult to take their pics.


Here's a pic of Archie grooming Henry which is the sweetest thing. Henry never reciprocates tho. Henry is so spoiled!


What a profile!


What a face! Henry is the cutest prettiest faced Boston I have ever seen!


And Archie is just the funniest cleverest Boston!


God I love these fellas! They each have such wonderful and different personalities. Henry is quiet and loving almost and dare I say cat like, Archie is mischevious and actually smiles (that is the money shot!)and Archie is very attached to Henry, Henry could probably do without lil Archie but we couldnt.

BOSTONS RULE!!!!

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. "
