Make a date to get inspired about the holidays: The Essex Holiday House Tour, which benefits the Child & Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut, is on Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Deanna Pinette, who owns Gather in Ivoryton, is helping several of the Essex homeowners who are opening their homes this year. The tour, Deanna says, “is a great girls’ day out. At that time of the season, most other people don’t have their houses decorated yet. So it’s kind of a jumpstart. You go home and say, ‘Oh, I’m going to do this!’ It inspires people.”

Here’s a link to my preview of the tour in this month’s issue of Hartford Magazine.
