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!

redoing my living room

one piece got me moving things around. i did a trade with my good friend Andrea and got a large metal garden stand so of course i had to find a place for it.   btw she got some 1800 brown transfer ware dishes that we only used for very special occasions but we both fell in love with the others item sooooooo 

i moved stuff around and this is what i have so far. still needs some jujjing

here is the metal plant stand in all its chipped paint and rustiness

Here's my old smaller planter, i'm so happy around the old garden things

and another metal planter, added this vintage French apt sign to it, now i'm waiting for weather to cool so i can plant and dry flowers to fill it up with

moved this from one side of the room and added the items on the top added the seeds sign and of course my vintage concrete chickens

gardening and birds

and of course bostons, Obsessed!

 looks like Dan is wrapping up something for shipping in the background! (bubble wrap in background)  

any suggestions are appreciated but what i'd really like is a large chipped up painting of white and pink roses, oh a girl's gotta have her dreams.

have the best days possible!

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. "
