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!

Well its something i kinda knew was coming

Henry is getting older and honestly we never thought he'd live this long, he is almost 10 and when he was a puppy the emergency room vet told us to put him down. We couldnt and we made the right decision. he has had stomach problems all his precious life but has had so much joy and has given us so much joy.

anyway, he had surgery recently to remove a piece of plastic he swallowed, Lord knows when or how he did that, anyway he then had some tumors removed and his teeth cleaned as his gums had become mildly infected.   

his bloodwork showed his kidneys are elevated and his vet appt this am shows they are climbing.   he goes back in 6 mos to see if they are still climbing as fast.   right now he is in the begining stages of it but my vet says some dogs live some time with it like that, however there are concerns due to the continued elevation....

so you know, i realize everything dies but it just hurts so much when reality hits.   Hoping Henry has at least another year with us he is loved so very much and he is my best buddy and has been for almost 10 yrs.

last night this little fella came for a visit and i'm going to believe he is a good omen

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. "
