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!

New Nostalgic Folk Art Snowmen on Etsy

I always work on items that hit my moods. Sometimes i make holiday items during spring or summer. This is why i dont do special requests, well i really try not too. Things are never as good when they are forced.

anyway, i am working of a series of N O E L s, they are cheerful snowmen,usually singing,joyful maybe from having a bit too much glug or nog!  My fellas are inspired by the old ceramic figures of the 30's 40's and 50's by Lenox, Napco, Norcrest and the best of all Holt Howard.

 I guess you've figured out why these are called N O E L s

Full of joy and friendship enjoying every moment available to them because the season is about so much more.

will be adding more to my etsy site but if you dont see them there feel free to contact the places that sell my work (if you scroll down blog) to see if they have some.


  1. Your work is so interesting. I mean that in the most inspired way. I love the unusual originality of them. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a good word. I'm getting back into things after moving so much. Take care, T


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. "
