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!

Until next year,

This is torture, to see Kipp off and away, but thats the way life is. You raise your children and then they grow up and move on. I'm writing this with a fresh broken heart but i know in a few days it'll be back to normal at our house, just like last year when he spent a very quick year in Ireland. Japan (he will be teaching english)is so different than Ireland so i'm a bit more nervous about it all until i hear from him and he his all settled. These pics are from this am at the Orlando Airport.

btw while in line Billy Corrigan from (most known) Smashing Pumpkins was in line too. AWSOME! terrible pic but didnt want to freak him out, anyway he is with the gal with the orange hat at the check in. We were hoping he'd be on Kipp's flight.


  1. oh Carol. I've been thinking of you ALL day. Look at your Kipp! He is so handsome and so good looking! I just love the hair cut and glasses on him! He's all grown up, and on his way to Japan! I know you must be so proud, but I also know how very bittersweet this day is for you. I'm thinking of you sweet friend. <3

  2. Awww darlin'. I know you're sad. :> ( But he will be just fine! Who knows, maybe you can take a trip out to see him? ♥


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. "
