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, www.etsy.com/shop/NostalgicFolkArt











The Best to you always!

Some Pics of The Boys



Well actually these boys were made by Karen Pender of Countryfolks Keepsakes and they are adorable! They remind me of my lil fellas Henry and Archie!
Of course Karen makes Bostons for sale but she also has other breeds on her site as well as primitive dolls.

And they may not be primitive but here are some pics of my dolls Henry and Archie!



I try to catch Archie smiling and its IMPOSSIBLE but i swear he grins ear to ear and if i could just catch it i'm sure Dentastix would make him a millionaire! In the meantime i'm like that old cartoon character that finds the frog in the cement block!



Henry doesnt grin ear to ear, this beautiful boy does that Tyra Banks thing, he smizes giggle.

  1. I love Bostons! Our family has a long history of companionship with this wonderful breed. My father had some when he was young, we had them as I was growing up, my children grew up with them, and my grandchildren are growing up with them. Such loving animals.

    Oh, and I love Karen Pender's little fellas!

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. "
