About 8-9 years ago, I rented an old cottage on Koontz lake. a small town in Indiana. I loved it, I worked about 15 minutes from the lake so everything was really great. We had a small corn cob figurine in the shape of a women dressed like the 1800's. I would call it the Little house on the prairie doll, we kept it in a window facing in, but every day when i returned from work it would be facing outside, as to be looking out the window, it was strange, but also kinda funny, both myself and my boyfriend would take turns turning the figurine to face in, and every night we'd discover it looking out the window. One day, I was laying on my couch watching T.V. it was just around noon, and I will never forget it for the rest of my life, I saw a glimmer of mist in the corner of my eye, I turned to look towards the bathroom, and there stood a women, she was dressed just like the figurine, I could see right through her, but at the same time I could see every wrinkle in her dress, I wasn't as much frightened as I was shocked, I sat up really fast and she just kinda back out of sight, I didn't know what to do or say, the only thing that came to mind was "Hello". As soon as I said it, she came back. she stood there for just a few seconds but I could see every inch of her. I was so amazed that I was seeing this that I jumped to my feet and said "who are you" she then backed up out of sight again. I walked over to the door way and into the bathroom but there was nothing there. I couldn't believe it. I immediately started calling everyone I could to tell about what I had just seen, but no one would believe me, not even my boyfriend. I know what I saw and I don't care who believes me anymore. we moved out of the house shortly after that, the house was sold but sits empty now. I drive past it every now and then. I would love to live there again, somehow it just felt so calm. like home.
