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!

New Items on The Merc

I cant believe i listed so late last night but i did and here are my new offerrings for the month of Jan 2012! also some new work added to my website.

Hope ya'll had a safe yesterday and are recouping nicely. ugh thank goodness for bacon and eggs!!!

Faded Flower (which is my self appointed nickname although i do prefer Jinxie which my tdipt sisters call me)anyway she is part of a series of figures that remind me of those older colonial type dolls but they arent reproductions of them just a bit of inspiration. And since i dont sew all these gals have paper dresses so they are very fragile as an old old doll would be. Keeping it real hee hee.

A New Direction,it sold tho already which is wild as its a bit different then what i offer online as opposed to the gallery stuff. anyway,

This is Humpty Dumpty Nostalgic Folk Art style! and i really thought myself clever to add the graffiti on the wall (Carol Was Here)

A Song In My Heart figure and she is super heavy and super prim but artsy too in a way, not sure where she fits in but I have enjoyed her for a few months and now its time to try and get her adopted.

anyway i've gotta add the new stuff to my site and then finish taking down the Christmas decorations. Then kinda relax the rest of the day, damned be the laundry!


  1. are clever, and anything but a faded flower! Love your new pieces.
    Happy New Year to you, Dan and Kipp!

  2. Thanks Patty! and Happy New Year and Happy everything to you!!!!!

  3. o Jinxie... you are anything BUT a faded flower! I absolutely adore "A New Direction" - she is breathtaking - and yes, maybe a bit different than what is normally offered up, but wow, she speaks to me and others too! In talking with others, I think many are ready for a change and new direction in their life. Time to regain the focus internally and to forge ahead with renewed vigor.
    Anyway, Just popping in to wish you and Dan and Kipp a very happy and healthy New Year. May all your hopes become reality. You are a treasure to my heart and I love you dearly!

  4. Oh Cookie what beautiful words, you are the treasure! Thank you and happiest New Year to you and Darrell!

  5. I think these are all terrific! Faded flower? Nope, don't think so!

    Happy New Year!

  6. Faded Flower?! Heck, you're always in bloom darlin'!!
    I love all these pieces and your touch of whimsy always brings a smile to my face. :> )


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. "
