We go behind the scenes at Tea Rose Home to tour Sachiko's sewing room in Provo, Utah.

This is very close to the dream sewing room I always imagined to have someday. First I love where it is located, which is on the main floor right off the living room. I can still be present for the kids, but I can close the French doors to get some privacy if I need to. I also love the hardwood floor, it is so easy to clean the sewing messes, and I can roll around the room in my chair. When I need a bit more extra room, I can open up the French doors to use the hallway as part of the room as well.

Carmen Ri recreates the look of actress Gemma Arterton.

Gemma Arterton is one of the most beautiful women on this Earth. With the beauty and style that is very reminiscence of that of the classic Hollywood Actresses. She manages to balance a look that is ladylike but also very sensual, whilst keeping it modern. It's not just her looks or style that makes her captivating but also her talent. Her acting career shows her personality as much as her style does, roles ranging from studio blockbusters such as Prince of Persia to independent films like The Disappearance of Alice Creed.

Our sidekicks are testing out Sugru for this week's Craft Test. Sugru is a shapeable putty that will stick to almost anything and then hardens overnight into a sturdy flexible rubber. Hester made an amazing jewellery tree to organize her bling, SteffyB personalized a coffee mug, Juditchen embossed a gorgeous pendant and Cat make a crafty cookie stamper. Once you've tried it, you can't help dreaming up new uses for it!


Sarah Burford is the textile artist, illustrator and dreamer behind the pocket sized showgirls at Curious Pip. The majority of Sarah's work is inspired by her lifelong fascination with old Hollywood - particularly the 1930's. She draws upon the style and sophistication of actresses such as Myrna Loy, Jean Harlow and Ginger Rogers to create unique, one off, art dolls and illustrations that mesmerize and bring to mind a bygone era of sizzling glamour. Sarah has been making and painting for as long as she can remember. As a child she'd watch old movies and sketch all her favourite costumes, she'd also raid her grandmas cupboards and wardrobe - a treasure chest of hats, net curtains and old coats to create her very own unique dressing up box. Curious Pip. has become a worldwide success since the business started in 2011. Last year she won Best Vintage Style Artist at The National Vintage Awards and enjoys a constant flow of work from all corners of the globe. Many of Sarah's dolls and illustrations have skipped off to destinations that Sarah's not yet even set foot. Sarah works from her ever expanding studio space at home in Bristol UK which she shares with her dashing architect husband and cheeky six year old son.

MissDarkMark recreates the glamorous home of burlesque star Dita Von Teese:

Dita Von Teese is a very glamorous and classy lady, and this is very well reflected in her home. I love all the rich colours and bold fabrics that have been used and how each room has its own theme, yet they all seem to flow well together. She has some very unusual and quirky decor that not everyone would be able to get away with, how ever shows how dedicated Dita is to the vintage lifestyle. It can defiantly be said that she has put her own stamp on this home.
