Mark your calendar!  Mama’s cousin, renowned knife painter Rene Chase is hosting her first solo exhibition “She Wears a Red Dress” Thursday August 2nd 5-8pm at Handworks Gallery, 12 King Street, Saint John.  Rene’s work is popular both here and away with sales as far as Europe.  Taking to painting later in life her unique blend of colours and subject matter have made her an overnight success!  Mama welcomes you to join her at this important exhibition as Rene unfolds her latest creations!  I’ve asked if I dress up with a tie might I attend but so far no luck.  Mama says “It’s not like your a Chihuahua that I can hide in a purse!”

We’re all very exited that Mama listed and just sold 30 Fox Den Court in Drury Cove, listed at $1.49M. Her out of province buyer and his family  are very excited about moving to Saint John and look forward to our casual, down to earth, easy going lifestyle here and we welcome them to the community!  It’s a quick two week closing for this glorious Malibu-style glass house.  This sale sets a new standard for Saint John and the Kennebecasis Valley!  This is Mama’s 7th Million Dollar Plus sale in Southern NB since 2007!  Nicholas and I are very proud of you Mama!

 

 

We’ve changed our open house schedule for the summer months!

There’s nothing better than summer in New Brunswick with our fresh sea air, warm days and cool nights!  Rather your boating, biking, hiking, camping or spending the day at the cottage or beach, New Brunswickers have an extra spring in their step under the pure blue NB sky this time of year.  Because we know you’re busy on the weekends now please watch for our convenient open houses during summer months from 3:30 to 5:30 on week days so you can drop in on your way home from work.   We had a good turn out this past Wednesday at 19 Upper Deck Lane and the attendees really appreciated our schedule.  Just one more step to show our business is all about you!  Watch for upcoming dates.

I’m hoping to get swimming this weekend in the Bay of Fundy.  I jump right in every chance I get.  Now that summer is here and the water has warmed up a bit Nicholas jumps in too.  Mama’s been in over her knees so far and we’re hoping she’ll be swimming right beside us this weekend.  We’ll watch the tides and time it for the water coming in over the hot sand which makes quite a difference.  Paws crossed and hoping that she’s in.  Papa thinks we’re crazy getting in that cold water but they say it’s good for you.  We threaten to drag him in but so far no luck.  If any of you four-legged friends are interested I give free swimming lessens.  I had a great session with Cooper Baxter last Saturday who is 1 1/2 years old and used to just go in just to her knees but after a half hour with me she had two good swims out over her head!  She just needed to see how to relax in the water and enjoy it.  Have a great weekend.  Hope to see you out and about.  (Hope Papa fires up that barbeque too).  Yum, yum. he’s a good cook.

We invite you to join us for a rare glimpse of St Andrews ‘Seavista’ Estate this Sunday from 2-4pm.  This impressive oceanfront estate home was built with the very best! 4.74 scenic acres and 240 feet water frontage on Passamaquoddy Bay with panoramic sunset views overlooking Minister’s Island and Bay of Fundy.  Charming cedar-shingle Nantucket-style with huge wrap-around covered veranda, 11’ ceilings, Carrera marble bathrooms,  home chef’s dream antique reproduction kitchen with Thermador, JenAir and Electrolux appliances, mahogany staircase, three wood-burning fireplaces and the most outstanding feature  not to be missed is the roof top belvedere overlooking the water , scenic countryside and distant mountains with glass window walls on all four sides.   81 Harbour View Lane located 5 minutes from the seaside town of St. Andrews off Route 127 & 20 minutes from Calais Maine, USA.  Direction; Route 127 to St Andrews, onto Ross Road, right onto Harbour View Lane.  Watch for directional signs.

I’ve been enjoying my weekends in Charlotte County at New River Beach and surrounding private beaches so I can attest for the gorgeous weather and cool nights which makes it good for sleeping.  Mama did shave a fair amount of fur off me for the warm summer months and it sure feels good.  I’ll be watching for you so be sure to say “hello” if you see me and Nicholas out and about!
