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!

listings on My Crowded Little Nest etsy shop

added some neat things things like these

an 1879 homeopathic medical book, full of incredible "solutions" for illnesses

 Vintage Valentine Cards, American and German

vintage primary reader books

set of 8 vintage quilted placemats
 and Japanese majolica, bee sugar pot or trinket container


  1. On my!! I LOVE that old book! I bet the remedies are worse than the illnesses. Kind of like the "possible" drug side effects are to the illnesses now!!

  2. Peanut it sold asap and yes there was alot of ridiculous (in our time) thoughts regarding cures.


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. "
