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!

Almost Done Decorating

But i did take some pics and here they are, hope you enjoy them.


My faded Angel which i was gonna offer on The Merc this month but thought i'd hang on to her for a bit. A great lil bear, vintage tiny angel bells, old lights and an old sign.









Hope and Joy spelled with vintage type setter blocks



a small view of my once garden room now full of Christmas!



This tree has our old and faded and delicate ornies


One of my unsold ski bears, which is really one of my favs so I'm just using him in my own holiday decor







This is the tree that is the most fun! it is full of ornies that were given to us and ornies that we found so ridiculous.



Ok i just love those old plastic Christmas ornies!


a small collection of vintage Christmas boxes, some filled!


My shrine to the things Kipp made when he was little.Peanut's beautiful cardinal and one of my unsold Christmas pieces.


We really need more vintage ornies!

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. "
