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!

Can you help me?

I am looking for a set of these dishes. I have 4 plates, a creamer, one coffee cup, one bread plate.
I LOVE this set and am willing to trade out with my other collectible dish set. (Blue Ridge) or purchase them from you whatever you may prefer.


this pattern reminds me of when i was a little girl in Miami and they just make me happy.

  1. The pattern is Modern Leaf and is the only one of the Blue Ridge patterns that I was familiar with. It is also evidently one of the least available, but I did find this on ebay--

  3. Another place to check out is www.replacements.com. The place is amazing and will even help you identify china patterns by photos you send them. You can register a pattern request with them if they don't already have it and notify you if/when pieces come available. Good luck- love the dish!

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. "
