Made in Living Memory

Yesterday while watching one of my favorite BBC shows "Flog It" I heard the expression "made in living memory" used many times. 

At first the saying sounded a bit like something you would hear at funerals or cemeteries, but then I realized they were referring to vintage objects displayed on the show. 

As vintage and antique always seem to have questionable age references, I was glad to add a new terminology to "old dusty stuff." 

MILM ( made in living memory) 

For me that would include anything made from the end of the 1940's until now. Or I can stretch it to my mom's memory and go back to the mid 1920's.

Anyway, I like the term "made in living memory" and thank the BBC for once again enlightening me. 

Now I just need to see what time Monty Don's "Gardeners' World" comes on tv tonight. Humm!
