An unexpected twist of fate.

To my friends and loyal customers,

Last month as I was contemplating participating as a merchant in SL's Relay For Life event, in an unexpected twist of fate I also learned in real life that I have breast cancer.

I'm now scheduled for a double mastectomy at the end of April.

I'm writing to let you know that I may not be in SL on a daily basis in the next several weeks, so if you have any customer service questions or issues, please contact me via my email address,, which I can access away from my home office.

In the mean time, as a thank you for your support, all regular priced Montagne Noire clothing in pink or red will be discounted to 50L. This discount is only available at the Caledon Oxbridge Village main store.

I would have very much like to have been able to offer a RFL promotion, but now I must focus on my own personal "relay for life," which means diverting my SL income toward paying my medical expenses.

I encourage all of you to patronize those merchants participating in RFL this year -- I have seen some wonderful creations being offered.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding during this challenging time in my life.
