Classic Children portraits

If you are a fan of our classic children shoes, chances are you will like the portrait painting of Alexander von Treuenfels. Having seen his paintings, we find he really captures the soul of the child.
At this time of the year, pastel children´s portraits make the ideal Christmas presents.
Just send him your photographs!

Our 3 winners!

We got such lovely drawings in for our drawing competition. Thank you for participating with such beautiful and fun ideas. Here are our three winners with their amazing shoe designs! 

♥ Congratulations Arthur, Lara and Edward ♥ You can now choose a pair of your favourite shoes at Menthe et Grenadine!


Lara aged 6 dreams of rainbow ballerinas with glitter and stars


My little sister Imo and I made this shoe together. We both love fairies and think that some may even live in our woods at home. This shoe is for the queen of the fairies. Our mummy helped a teeny tiny bit. Love Arthur, age 71/2 and Imo


Edward, aged 5 loves stars, hearts and shiny flowers
We had 3 very close contenders. These were Violet, Clara and George. Thank you for your lovely shoes, we loved all your comments and can see how much hard work and talent went into them.

My dream shoe has fairy wings to make you fly, speakers to play music and a magical princess crown to turn you into a princess, Violet aged 3

I like crystals and stones, and how my shoe sparkles around the edge! George, aged 7

Clara, aged 5, designed a sparkling shoe with a lovely pompon on the front

All these can be seen here

Mardi Gras (pancake day)

Nutella, sugar, lemon or jam? What is your favourite crêpe?
Here is a lovely recipe for French crêpes:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted


Make the crepes:

Sift together flour, sugar and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, beat eggs and milk together with an electric mixer. Beat in flour mixture until smooth; stir in melted butter.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. 

Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 2 tablespoons for each crepe. 
Tip and rotate pan to spread batter as thinly as possible. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
