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!

OMG pulling into the parking area

Dogs were all over the place so that makes me even more happy to be there.

  1. Hey!!! It's COLD in here!! Can SOMEone turn up the heat!!???
    They sure are cute and I would have been shakingly excited too! last year when I went to my very first flea market (well , for at least the last 30 years...) in San Jose, I was shaking all the way around!! And, yes, we stopped for doggies too!! Almost equal to the flea market, no one was parting with any!!
    And yes, very sad about Glenn Fry, he was an icon for me, saw them in the early 70's a bunch when they were first starting to tour....and then their hell freezes over concert....sad......have all their albums, but will miss him ......artists live forever.....

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. "
