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!

pure hell!  I was sick with a cold and then Archie got an infected anal gland. YES Lord! He is on pain meds and antibiotics as well as a cream for his little bum.  he actually had a laser treatment yesterday but came home scooted and reopened his abscess. So here i sit stressed beyond, hoping this little scamp will heal up as nothing seems to be helping him right now.

I took some pics of him this morning. He is something else full of personality. My heart is hurting for this sweetie.

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.

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. "
