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!

from the the road trip to the shop

i listed so many new items on My Crowded Little Nest Etsy Shop but some of my favorite items are these Victorian die cut Valentines and these sordid (well 1950s sordidness) detective pulp fiction paperbacks, just love the cover art

these are from the 1800s and have silk fringe around them, great for framing

 Va Va Va Voom    You know the type of story, its sordid and cheap and just the kind of dame......

 and this is so danged pretty!
but so many items listed, if ya get a moment check out the shop.

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. "
