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!

The Yearly 72 Mile yard sale!

Because apparantley i dont have enough stuff!!  Its a sickness but its an inexpensive one and it doesnt harm anyone as Dan has it too.

Do i need more old stuff?

Look at my den, so many things i enjoy and that make me smile and bring joy.

 even my kitchen window sil has stuff on it.
my living room window sills is filled as well 
 so off Dan and i go to the 72 mile yard sale! lip gloss in pocket hair pulled back keds on!

first sale and got a painted tray kinda rusty but fruit still bright

the weather was misty with light sprinkles throughout the morning
i feel like at the end of the world so peaceful (for about the next 20 mins then everyone is out!)

 Dan checking out the sales for a sec.

 the weather made for choppy waves
 in Flager there was the Tommy Tant surf festival.

 some businesses had yard sales too.

 Dan checking out the crocks but no sale
 onward to St. Augustine a very beautiful city even on a grey day

 we ate lunch at Cafe Eleven and had the brunch, the french toast was the best ever! this place was recomended to us and didnt disapoint even tho its seems like a hipster joint inside, very healthy sandwiches, no pastrami or corned beef which i was craving but the brunch was great.
after lunch we headed home and here are some of the goodies we found.

perfect to go with a Karen Brady Bear, some old stuffed figures, the dacshaund and seal are Steiff's and the lil rabbit (my fav) may be too not sure. 

an old fertilizer sign and some McCall's store signs, an engineering box an old teapot and look at Henry so nosey giggle

 an old rolling pin, vintage snow globes (plastic kitcshy fun), old biscuit tin and donkey cigarette dispenser a grape box and finally a cutout of Washington in a tiny frame.
they are cleaned up and dispersed except for the donkey, Dan had to break the ice and buy something and that vintage donkey was it.

last year we really got nothing but we had a blast on the hunt.

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. "
