Mourning Monday 4.23.12

I'd like to share a link I stumbled upon recently called: Morbid Road Trip: The Scattered Artifacts of Lincoln's Assassination. It's wonderfully macabre.
I love how mundane objects can be instantly transformed into sacred relics.
I think people like to find a way to connect with the past. It's our way of remembering, of focusing on that one instant or moment in time.

Some of you may be familiar with my Weekly Reliquary project recently. One very personal relic in particular stands out to me.
You can read about it and see the relic here and then view the reliquary here.

What type of artifacts do you find magical?
