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.


My blog is just to get a more personal view of Nostalgic Folk Art what inspires me. 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, www.etsy.com/shop/NostalgicFolkArt











The Best to you always!

My friend Tee Thompson of Hot Metal Mamma, just moved into her dream cottage in New Smyrna. I didnt take enough pics of her home as well, she had some good Australian wine (I know nothing about wine i just drink what i like) and snacks and i got caught up in that giggle. anyway i took mostly her gorge metal works. one day  sigh. now look and dream!

her back yard gate
 her outdoor shower with lil frogs leaping all around
 her fence
 Tee Dan and her momma
 her old chippy table
 her flock of flying fish on her kitchen wall
 her saying Dont take my picture, look at her stone countertops
 there is a fish like a fossil in the funky wave of her concrete sink
 her palm tree in hallway



 and the coolest thing ever, this wall was the outside of the original tiny cottage


 her work at The Hub Gallery in New Smyrna Beach she puts lights on fences if requested.
 friends for life!

Dora so she may be living with them for a bit, i guess i'm saying she may go up in price over there so if you must have her, get her now.

New Nostalgic Folk Art and Etsy listing

I just added Doll to my website and Evil Queen to my Etsy shop




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. "
