How are you looking for your iPhoto library backup? The way to do that with Time Machine is to launch TM and in the resulting window(looks like a finder window) going back to the time you want to restore, selecting the iPHoto library (it is a single entity - you can not restore pieces of it) and clicking restore
You must have aminimum of 10 GB of free space on your boot drive after restoring the iPhoto library - how much free space do you have?

I have 30 Gb of free space and have done exactly what you said about TM, but when I open the recovered iPhoto it doesn't have anything. The only iPhoto with my pictures that I could recover yeasterday was from an old backup from August 2010. But it was replaced by my lastest backup (yesterday).

You mayt need to go to the TM forum since your issue appears to be with TM - not iPhoto -
As a note - TM does not overwrite backups as it updates - with TM you can go back to any time that is in the TM backup - as it runs out of space it notifies you and deletes the oldest files
