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!

Well this sure as heck put a smile on my face!

The postman left this on my doorstep this am and my happy adreneline tipped the scales. I have been dying to see this adorable prim doll, made from Peanut of Countryfolk Keepsakes, check her shop out on Etsy if you want one. They are more than reasonably priced btw. I feel a little bit quilty about that but hey she priced them.

Before i show her cuteness, let me share my loved other prim pieces,

this gal is just precious and she was made by Karen (Cookie) De Greve of Curds n Whey

this piece is just as stunning as a vintage Steiff, its a Brady Bear, made by Karen Brady

and i dont know what happend here with the picture, i cant flip it ugh, but this angel is another favorite of mine, by Patty Kelly Trevino of Dogpatch Primitives, maybe its just too flipping gorgeous you'll get hysterical blindness if you look to long!

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. "
