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!

She's Feeling Better!!!!!


Well just got an update from my friend, Peanut and her lil Hannah seems to be feeling better. She is not out of the woods yet but she is a long way from where she was and i know how much she means to her mama and hoping she continues to get back to her old self!

I wasnt sure what to do about this posting, it seems Hannah took a turn for the worse and crossed the rainbow bridge today 2/22/11. My heart goes out to Peanut, her husband and their other furbabies. I am praying for their tender hearts to have strength and their pain is eased in knowing they gave Hannah the most wonderful 10 plus years any dog could have.

My Heart Grows!

Just look at these too precious gals! The lil Doxie is not feeling well and my friend took a picture of her Boston comforting her. These two gals have been sisters for almost 11 years and you can see the bond they share. Because of the circumstances this picture just makes my heart swell. It is truly beautiful and poignet.

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. "
