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!

Something Special



First let me appologize but i cannot get these pics to turn the right way. they show up normal but just settle in this way. But for me its always the year of the Dog and i thought i'd share some really sweet treats. one for fido the other for you.
Doggone Good Goodies are homemade dog treats and Henry and Archie loved them. www.doggonebakedgoods.com  check this out.


The other site to check out is Clevotine, www.etsycom/shop/clevotine    which a % of sales goes to Boston Terrier rescue. I purchased a pink tee with a wild faced Boston and it is so Archie (my wild Boston). The tee  is so soft feels great.

Yay for Bostons, Dogs and All animals!

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. "
