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!

Lots of Vintage Christmas goodies!

trying to find vintage halloween items is tough but i can still find those wonderful kitschy vintage Christmas goodies and i have just listed some new things on My Crowded Little Nest etsy site
(including a silly retro half face mask for Halloween) here's som pics

ok even tho this is vintage, i'm thinking 1970's you could update this look with 2 top knot pony tails and put on a tankini and go as zombie Miley! giggle 

  to see more of this jolly fella you'll have to visit my etsy shop
 an old paper mache candy container nodder
 wouldnt these make great ornaments?
 little bell ornaments so sweet

 these arent Christmas bells but they would make great presents, sweet bakers and cooks
will be adding some retro glasses, jewelry and vintage aprons!


  1. To look like Miss Miley, you'll also have to coat that tongue too. ((giggle))
    Hi, Miss Carol!! Please give the boys my love and kisses.

  2. yeesh yeah, poor kiddo i am rooting for her, she is so pretty and talented, but when she gets to be an old fart like me boy oh boy is she gonna cringe at this "phase"


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. "
