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!

If you have a dog read this please

I saw this on I Love Boston Terriers Facebook page (this was not my little angel)

To all my friends and family. My Dachshund Harley became very ill. Took him to Caring Hearts Vet Clinic. Received a call a bit ago that Harley had passed. They did surgery yesterday evening and found that the treats were blocking his digestive tract, had major inflammation in stomach, colon and pancreas. The vet seems to think he was poisoned. He told me there had been a lot of recalls for the Canine Carryouts and MANY OTHER DOG FOOD AND TREATS. According to research I have done this morning, Del Monte Pet Products, a division of Del Monte Foods, distributes these products. As per some info I found, they do import some of the ingredients from China. Please check you dog's food and treats and if they contain propylene glycol or if they are processed and/or packaged by Del Monte foods STOP feeding them these products. Nestle Purina also distributes these products. Propylene glycol is anti-freeze. ( EDITED SECTION TO CLARIFY) Since so many people are saying that propylene glycol is not anti-freeze, do some research and you will find it is in the supposedly new pet friendly anti-freeze. According to research by myself and others there have been multiple issues with tainted propylene glycol and other ingredients that are imported from China. Many of the pet food company's bags, Del Monte included do not say where they are manufactured, they ONLY SAY DISTRIBUTED BY. If you have any doubts, please take the time to research this for yourself and then you can make the same decision I have. )
This is the the list that I have found that has had recalls in the past:




i checked my Pedigree Jumbones and Bil Jac liver treats and they have that propylene glycol too. i'm throwing them out!

Also found this shared on a post shared by someone who shared my post:

From the cdc website
Propylene GlycolCAS ID #: 57-55-6
Affected Organ Systems: Dermal (Skin), Renal (Urinary System or Kidneys), Respiratory (From the Nose to the Lungs) 







Chemical Classification: None

Summary: Propylene glycol is a synthetic liquid substance that absorbs water. Propylene glycol is also used to make polyester compounds, and as a base for deicing solutions. Propylene glycol is used by the chemical, food, and pharmaceutical industries as an antifreeze when leakage might lead to contact with food. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified propylene glycol as an additive that is “generally recognized as safe” for use in food. It is used to absorb extra water and maintain moisture in certain medicines, cosmetics, or food products. It is a solvent for food colors and flavors, and in the paint and plastics industries. Propylene glycol is also used to create artificial smoke or fog used in fire-fighting training and in theatrical productions. Other names for propylene glycol are 1,2-dihydroxypropane, 1,2-propanediol, methyl glycol, and trimethyl glycol. Propylene glycol is clear, colorless, slightly syrupy liquid at room temperature. It may exist in air in the vapor form, although propylene glycol must be heated or briskly shaken to produce a vapor. Propylene glycol is practically odorless and tasteless.

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. "
