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!

Had a Yard Sale yesterday

and still tired, but it was so much fun! My neighbor MJ and Marion, had a table of their goodies set up too, my neighbor Iris across the street was set up and Helen and Keith put a table up in her drive way. so it was four homes in 2 drive ways. lots of junk and good stuff we were all just tired of.
Here are some pictures of the first hour of the sale.

setting up and MJ heads to Iris's home to check out her goodies. MJ and I bought from each other giggle

ignore the cracks in my driveway but this is the final set up before the crowds.

I wasnt kidding when i said we had junk but you know what they say about one man's junk is another's treasure. the metal vintage ironing board is amazing tho. i kept it.

lots of architectual items we never got around to using in our home

Dan back from putting up the signs
 our wonderful neighbors MJ and Marion

 MJ's table

we had a steady stream of people and alot of sales, but we really marked things cheaply, except the mixing bowls, they were priced nicely

what didnt sell we boxed up to Family Renew and kept a few things for next years purge!

Still Recuperating from the 72 mile yard sale!

OH Wow did we find some sweet items! I'll be posting some of them on My Crowded Little Nest etsy shop.  But here are some pictures of our journey on that beautiful cloudy Florida day on A1A, so old Florida still!

Dan putting some boxes in our car in case we find something

our first stop

tons of elephants and i found a salt and pepper set and a funky figurine of a leaping ellie

so happy to get to this community sale  hating to stop for a pic, this is my only one

 I found a beautiful water color here dated 1906 and this house was so retro lovely with an amazing garden, wish i took better pics. I really loved this old fashioned Florida home near the beach.

 heading home exhausted from the excitement anticipation and the diner food!

Its a Beautiful Day! God Bless Our Vets Always!

Thank you! Everyday we should be thankful to our vets, for living in the best country in the world,for being loved and having opportunities to thrive.

how inspiring these beautiful flowers are. through weed kill, being trampled on daily, they had a desire and somehow these delicate beauties pulled through.

and unconditional love, well i'm not completely sure if its from me or him giggle,

Hey Stella Rose whats up girl?

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. "
