EFSP's Dazzling Dozen: The Stars at Home

Stars and their privacy is an interesting subject. We are curious about the people we admire and desire at the Silver Screen. Are they married? How does their home look like? And what about their kids? Many famous people want to shield their private lives from the cameras, but others believe it's all in the game. Today, a dozen postcards with stars from the past photographed at home or with their loved ones.

As always, your intriguing postcards and wonderful research are so very memorable and fascinating. I love the idea of the Stars at home. Each of these postcards are wonderful.

Have a great weekend, Paul. It is to be raining again here tomorrow. I keep hoping for snow. :D
