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!

25 Years So Quickly!

Yesterday was our 25th wedding anniversary and it just doesnt seem that long ago. Dan and i have been thru so many ups and downs in our lives always together. He is my best friend and the nicest, most decent and gentlemanly fella i know. I thank my dad (who i know watches over us) for setting such a good example for me. I was kinda nervous as the day went on waiting for Dan to come home so we could go out for a nice dinner. It felt like i was getting married again as 25 is such a milestone. We saw pics of ourselves thru the years and it was bittersweet as i could see the young couple turn to the middle aged couple we looked at and said, " that will be us one day" at dinner, we went to The Dish as they serve good food tappas style, and during the end our dinner an elderly couple in their 70's sat next to us and Dan and i just looked at each other and smiled, on our way out we wished them a wonderful dinner and evening.

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. "
