Landfill Harmonic is an amazing film about a music teacher and a group of children who are growing up in a slum in Paraguay that is built on top of a garbage landfill. The film shows how they have been able to take everyday trash and transform it into instruments that make beautiful music, while transforming the children’s outlook on life. Truly Inspiring!

Nurseries tend to be a quiet and interesting place for your little one to call home and there’s no question that one of the most important (and iconic) items for a new nursery is the mobile. Mobiles are magical. There’s nothing like seeing your baby gaze up and follow the shapes, colors and movements in the sky.
Mobiles are also expensive. If you’re looking for something modern, simple and elegant, they can easily run up into the $50-$100 range. Some of our favorites are the Frazier & Wing as well as the Schmitt Design mobiles, available at Fawn & Forest (www.fawnandforest.com).
If you’re the DIY type of parent, you can create one of these beautiful installations by using two wooden dowels, colored papers or foams and clear twine. The simplicity of this one we found online is stunning.
