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!

Hey Remember this (these) you will if your a fellow baby boomer!

 The brutal smell of noxzema and the tingley feeling it left on your face

 you could play a video game for a dime as well as a quarter

 these poor little turtles were at every five and dime. i wanted on so badly but never got one

feeling pretty cool with my transiter radio and all 2 or 3 stations it could pick AM/FM

never happened to me but i did have the shame of standing or sitting on the corner stool for talking on many occasions i'm sure its on my permanent record, 


watching black and white TV, having to get up to change the channel and watching Red Skeleton (tho his sad clown would make me so sad), Wild Kingdom,  Andy Williams,Jack Benny

Liquid cement! perfect for putting up wallpaper as well as holding a curl

had one of these but was so dumb i couldnt figure it out, i still dont read directions!

remember these were a penny then they went up to a nickel and then wholly heck a dime!

the coolest panty hose! great containers to hide you little private notes, toys, candy, (in your desk at school)

We called thesse potatoes, never thought i'd miss the 70's  if only for a minute

 yeah we were hard core! this is how we got pierced! mostly by a friend w/o gloves.


good by cursive

OMG skating in a parking lot with the portable turntable listening to the Eagles Witchy Women with my bestie Angel Horton for hours.

back to Miami in our little cement green house, with the new green scalloped carpet in the living room.

for every boo boo, this was the cure all or the original fake tan!

I still cannot accept how these work as well as other things. I am in the wrong era for sure.
hope you enjoyed the stroll down memory lane.


  1. OMG! Loved this post- still giggling about the dippity-do. Thanks for the memories. They all hit home big time!

  2. Oh man!! I remember most of these!! My mama "tortured" me with Dippity-Do and sponge rollers. ACK!! But my pigtails looked just like Buffy's on Family Affair. ((giggle))
    I made four of the six holes in my earlobes with rubbing alcohol, an ice cube and a safety pin. Yep, we were (and still are) tough ( and now old) broads.

    This post makes me happy and sad. The sadness comes from knowing kids aren't taught cursive anymore.
    You forgot Kiku perfume. :> )

  3. hahaha i know Peanut and i forgot Bonnie Bell


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. "
