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. I feel so blessed and thankful to God for being able to make these little pieces and hope they make you smile.

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!

Busy Weekend

full of rearrainging. I'm getting ansy and NEED to redo my old pink 1964 bathroom. So we picked out some new tile, that looks like bleached wood planks. I think we're gonna do an old beach shack kinda look. We dont have much to work with as no tub and this is a super tiny bathroom, think crusie ship size giggle.  Which is ok as i hate baths yuk, i only use the tub in the other bathroom for the dogs.

In the meantime as the whole bathroom thing is gonna take awhile, i'm all charged up and ready to go so i rearranged a lil area with some new items i picked up at antiqe malls, flea markets and yard sales.  Its amazing just moving around the same things to make the area look all new and interesting. Oh and i also took pics of Henry and Archie outside to share.

I love crocks, old signs, old wood boxes, vintage holiday items, old metal eagles and homemade folk art. 
This cow painting i just purchased from Folk Fest this past Aug.

 Love this old shoe shine box
 see those lil metal shoes? they are so heavy, they are a door stop! too cute.

 Henry on patrol!
 Archie waiting for me to throw something anything for him to chase and retrieve!
 Tee Thompson, Hot Metal Mama makes this crows, hopefully they'll scare the grasshoppers away. Those frighten me, espescially the big yellow ones. ugh Monsters!
 Archie begging me to throw somethng his way! He never stops
 Henry the great lizard hunter!!!!
I know i have way too much stuff, its an illness but not yet ready for an intervention on Hoarders!

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. "
